A Curious Earth by Gerard Woodward
A Curious Earth is the final installment of Gerard Woodward's trilogy about the Jones family. Elderly Aldous is alone in the family house and grieving for his late wife, Colette. When a fall lands him in the hospital for a while, Aldous decides he must find a life worth living again. He goes to Ostend to visit his son, rediscovers painting and art, and finds women as inscrutable as ever. A series of misadventures sends him back home, where he decides to turn the old family house into an art gallery. Aldous' story brings a fitting close to a well-received series of novels. A Curious Earth has received positive reviews with the London Times saying, "Woodward wears his influences lightly, and tells this strange story about living and dying in a voice as beautiful and bright as it is learned."
