The Headmaster's Wife Hardcover – September 1, 2000
Hawley presents a haunting story of a woman who is slowly dying of cancer, as told through her last journal. Meg's self-conscious perspective of life, colored by her awareness of her terminal illness, is simultaneously caustic and touching. Railing against her own weakness, Meg also struggles to make her death less painful for her loving husband and mourns the loss of her son, Brian, whose absence is itself a presence throughout Meg's final days. Chemotherapy, radiation treatment, and even morphine cannot destroy Meg's indomitable spirit: up until her last breath, she shares her musings on the meaning of life, love, and everything in between. Written in a poetic but also deeply intimate style, Hawley's novel offers a compelling glimpse into the psychology of death. Bonnie Johnston
