Honey by Arnold Wesker

Playwright Arnold Wesker brings back the character Beatie Bryant from his play "Roots" for his first novel, Honey. Beatie has graduated from university and at 25, she's embarking on her independent life. She suffers a series of setbacks from disastrous job interviews to the loss of friends. She has a mysterious encounter with an older man whose comment about dividing the world into two groups of people leaves her with inspiration. When she meets him again, he becomes the love of her life. Yet Beattie still struggles to find herself and her place in the world. Honey has received mixed reviews with The Guardian saying, "It's not a flawless debut by any means, but few first novels contain the depth of experience to present such a fully rounded portrait of the artist as an old man."
