I read The Innocent Mrs. Duff as part of a two-book omnibus with the same author's The Blank Wall: ISBN I'll make my notes on the latter novel in a few days' time. Living in a rich suburb of NYC and working in the city -- although there's little enough work for him to do in the family firm -- privileged Jake Duff has come quickly to despise his second wife Reggie/5(9).

The Innocent Mrs Duff is a psychological novel of suspense, seen from the point of view of Jacob Duff, husband of the innocent Mrs Duff, a young woman half his age whom he has recently married. Since he was a child Duff has been easily bored and he has now become bored with/5. In "The Innocent Mrs.

Duff", Mr. Duff has become bored with his young wife, Reggie, twenty years his junior. He imagines how wonderful his life would be again if his first wife had not died. While fantasizing about ridding himself of Reggie and perhaps starting a life with his son's nanny, Miss Castle, the uppercrust Duff entangles himself with /5(24).

THE BLANK WALL is so very fine that the added novella, THE INNOCENT MRS. DUFF, is just frosting on the cake. It isn't nearly at the level of Harding's masterpiece (the main character is too dislikable, and the plot he involves himself in is too farfetched), but it serves as a somewhat fascinating comparison point for other novels told from the /5.

For some reason, much as I've pushed her here, I'd never read THE INNOCENT MRS. DUFF by Elizabeth Sanxay Holding. It is remarkable in many ways, not least because the protagonis. Jacob Duff is drunk for virtually the entire novel. And we see 95% of the book through his eyes. Functionally drunk for most of it but also falling-down drunk in places.

Duff () and The Blank Wall () may not necessarily be the peak of her crime writing achievement--I haven't yet read all her books to say-- but they certainly are high points in a mighty range. It's hard to imagine her doing better than these superlative crime novels.

This pair of short novels of aboutwords apiece--The Blank Author: The Passing Tramp. I found the pacing to be perfect; it was brisk enough to move the plot along, but without feeling rushed, and lingered in just the right places for just long enough.

I think that, of the two novels, The Blank Wall is stronger than The Innocent Mrs. Duff, but really it probably comes down to a matter of personal opinion.5/5(1).
