The Newspaper of Claremont StreetBook - 1988
This is the story of an old cleaning woman, known as Weekly, or 'The Newspaper'. Unknown to the residents of Claremont Street, for whom she works, Weekly dreams of escape - escape from the parasitic demands of both her past and her present. Weekly is one of Elizabeth Jolley's major creations; one of the wiry survivors whose vulnerability is Jolley's special task of illumination. This character is perhaps the author's outstanding achievement to date, and is created with humour, sharpness, not a little sympathy, and finally, a sort of desperate calm.
