Product Description

Review

An ambitious and complex portrait of extraordinary times (Guardian)

What a lot Jane Gardam knows about love and its accommodations; the rich contradictory play of desire and loyalty; the sudden storms of feeling. And how elegantly and intelligently she writes about the instinctive, tendril-like gropings of one human heart towards another (Jane Shilling Daily Telegraph, Praise for Jane Gardam)

Book Description

The witty and sparkling new novel from Jane Gardam, bestselling author of Old Filth.

From the Inside Flap

Old Filth and The Man in the Wooden Hat told with bristling tenderness and black humour the stories of that Titan of the Hong Kong law courts, Old Filth QC, and his clever, misunderstood wife Betty. Last Friends, the final volume of this trilogy, picks up with Terence Veneering, Filth's great rival in work and - though it was never spoken of - in love.

Veneering's were not the usual beginnings of an establishment silk: the son of a Russian acrobat marooned in northeast England and a devoted local girl, he escapes the war to emerge in the Far East as a man of panache, success and fame. But, always, at the stuffy English Bar he is treated with suspicion: where did this blond, louche, brilliant Slav come from?

Veneering, Filth and their friends tell a tale of love, friendship, grace, the bittersweet experiences of a now-forgotten Empire and the disappointments and consolations of age.
