      Instances of the Number 3
Salley Vickers

The fantastic new edition of the bestselling second novel from the author of ‘Miss Garnet’s Angel’.Bridget Hansome and Frances Slater have only one thing in common. And that's Peter Hansome, who has died suddenly. Without their husband or lover, the women find that before they can rebuild their lives they must look to themselves and unravel mysteries that they had never before even suspected. So begins an unlikely alliance between wife and mistress and a voyage of discovery that is as comic as it is profound.‘Instances of the Number 3’ is a funny, beguiling exploration of love, bereavement, Shakespeare, illusion and the impossibility of escaping your past. Following on from ‘Miss Garnet’s Angel’, this brilliant novel confirms Salley Vickers as a writer who transcends generations.

Instances of the Number 3

Salley Vickers

For Rupert Kingfisher,

whose play The Prisoner’s Dilemma first suggested to me the creative possibilities in the number 3

BERTRAND RUSSELL

I doubt not of my own salvation; and in whom can I have such occasion of doubt as in my Self? When I come to heaven, shall I be able to say to any there, Lord! how got you hither? Was any man less likely to come hither than I?

JOHN DONNE, Sermon VIII, 371
