Mr Scobie's Riddle

Author(s): Elizabeth Jolley

Australian

Mr Scobie's arrival at the nursing home of St Christopher and St Jude - and descent into the clutches of Matron Hyacinth Price - is accidental. Adrift in his own memories but preserving a gentle politesse, Mr Scobie stands apart from the others. This bleakly comic investigation of old age, exile and displacement shows Jolley at her finest.
