This review is from: Caught (London Writing) (Paperback)
I came across Henry Green thanks to the enthusiasm expressed by Michael Moorcock and the New Worlds writers in the 1970s. At that time he was out of fashion, though still enjoyed by a few. His books passed from hand to hand and all my own first editions have since found other homes. Caught in my opinion one of his best novels and one of his most easily accessible. He has something in common with Ivy Compton Burnett -- always a suggestion of a sensibility so refined it's only guessable by common mortals -- but he is hugely rewarding. Anyone who has not yet discovered and become enchanted by Henry Green is, as they say, in for a treat!
