About this item
United Kingdom circa the 1980s—Ursula and Jerry find themselves surrounded by hip hairdos and dominating parents. Things look bleak if they do not change their lives dramatically. Both are itching to escape their current lives and engage with the wider world. Ursula’s work as a teacher takes her far away to India to instruct disabled children, while Jerry accepts a scholarship to Magdalen College but only to “highlight the absurdity of privilege.” Their written exchanges are deep, political and full of irony. All the while, Jerry stays committed to Urusula in mind but not in body, questioning their relationship and the nature of their love.
