The Queen of the Tambourine by Jane Gardam

The novel follows the life of Eliza Peabody, a bored, middle-aged housewife living in a wealthy London suburb. As her life starts to unravel, she begins writing a series of unsolicited letters to her neighbor, Joan, offering unsolicited advice. When Joan disappears, Eliza continues her one-sided correspondence, revealing more about her own life and its gradual descent into madness. The novel is a darkly comic exploration of loneliness, mental illness, and the human need for connection.
