Robert Barr was born in Scotland but when he was four his family moved to Canada. There he got brilliant education, and as he became interested in this field he decided to become a teacher. Barr's works are often based on his own experience and reveal his personality: straightforward and even cruel at first sight but very kind when you take a serious look. It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that John Bodman is unhappy in his marriage. It wouldn't be an exaggeration even to say that he hates his wife... that's completely true. The only thing he and his wife have ever felt towards each other is mutual hatred. All that John wants now is to get rid of his spouse. But everything goes more complicated considering the fact that his wife's personality and way of thinking resembles his own. How this story can develop? Read 'An Alpine Divorce' and you will know!
