The Age of Discretion (Some Things I Didn't Tell You?)

Author(s): Virginia Duigan

Fiction | March 2019 New Releases

When the sex in Vivien Quarry's thirty-two-year marriage dwindles to nothing, her husband Geoff finally gives her a reason: 'Men are hardwired to not find older women attractive'.   This unforgivable statement, uttered by a man long past his Adonis years, prompts Vivien to take drastic action.


At sixty-seven, she most definitely doesn't feel 'past it', and so enlists the services of the enigmatic Martin Glover from The Discretion Agency.    Under the sardonic eye of her oldest friend Jules, a world-famous operatic soprano facing the closing years of a brilliant career, Viv embarks on a series of wildly unpredictable, and sometimes hilariously cringeworthy dates - with wholly unexpected consequences.  


Told with great humour and heart, the accomplished Virginia Duigan delivers a provocative and profoundly relatable story that proves living is not reserved for the young.  


Praise for Virginia's past novels   'Highly recommended.' ABC's The Book Show   'Captivating' The Australian   'Duigan is a wonderful writer' The Sunday Telegraph
