OK, honesty time. You'll have to work at this book. It's more experimental prose than a novel, but the man was decades before his time. Let it absorb you; let it subsume you. Let it change your life. Green is a God; recognised by his peers, but apparently now forgotten. Resurrect him, and be the envy of dinner parties.

"But it's what I suspect Raunce, that's where the shoe pinches." 6 Sept. 2007
By Noddy Box - Published on
Unfolding within the hermetically-sealed demesne of a fairy tale, this is a novel of constantly surprising warmth and depth--it's the dialogue really but it's the writing mostly. I'd have to say spoken English has rarely read this well. The scene where the entire staff lisps in cruel imitation of the insurance agent had me actually trying to step outside the plane I was on, such was the hilarity. And then there's Edith, with those "dark eyes she sported which were warm and yet caught the light like plums dipped in cold water." That followed a few pages later by this: "When she was sure those drawers Mrs Jack had worn to go out were astray her great dark eyes had been hot to glowing." Sigh. Lucky Charley really is a lucky bleeder. And excuge me too if I suppoge a direct line of descent between Martin Chuzzlewit's Sairey Gamp and the grotesquely funny Mrs Welch. Henry Green is even better the second time round and having just accomplished same I take leave to announce that for righteous hard comedy I cannot at the minute parallel a fellow to this unbelievably lovely book.
