Pinder's The Indulgence resonates with our times. It is a courtroom drama about what happens when love turns to hate and everyone turns to the law. The endorsements say it all:
"The Indulgence is a gripping, powerful read. The protagonist, actress Lucinda Yates, is a compellingly original character, wonderfully impossible to categorize. She is articulate and self-reflecting; her sexuality is in free flow; she belongs to no camp. Yet she is caught in the compulsion of a ruinous, limiting relationship. Hers is an heroic struggle to escape the tragedy of falling in love with someone who does not have the capacity to return that love."
Juliet Stevenson, British stage and screen actress (Truly, Madly, Deeply; Bend it Like Beckham; Lawrence Olivier Award, Best Actress)
"The book is wonderful, full of elegance, and the narrative — not to mention the writing — so powerful. Such story-telling. A triumph."
Hugh Brody, filmmaker and author (Maps and Dreams; The Other Side of Eden)
"This is a powerful, blistering novel, a startling premise, a page turner, beautifully written, a novel that will remain with me for a long time. There are so many layers, such a myriad of involving and troubling themes that left me thinking way beyond the page... [A] cracking story, one that engages the reader right down to the wire."
