20th Century Classics II (Original English Fiction)
The Way of All Flesh (English Library)
"In writing for more than two decades, this percipient novel of the Victorian era is also a scathing indictment of its values. Butler (to use Tennysons phrase) is a Lord of Language."
The House Of Mirth (VMC)
"The heart-wrenching story of Lily Bart is the story of a womans search for love that is destined to end in tears, in a deeply flawed hierarchical society."
How Green Was My Valley (Penguin Modern Classics)
"A fondly nostalgic look back at the trial and tribulations of a mining community in Wales at the turn of the last century. The lyrical language adds to the emotional power of the novel."
The Heat Of The Day (Vintage Classics)
"Set in war-torn London, this densely atmospheric novel, graced with Bowens elegant prose, wit and penetrating observations is an utter joy to read."
The Living And The Dead
"This enigmatic novel, set in pre-war London and written in a style that is mordacious and degage at the same time, is an astute commentary on the failures of the modern society."
The Masters (Strangers and Brothers)
"The best of the Lewis Eliot sequence of novels. Its excellence lies in the great skill with which the key characters are drawn in all their varieties. Hypnotic readability."
The Road to Los Angeles
"The the best of the Bandini Quartet, the novel tells the story of the vicissitudes of the mental processes of a young writer. Outrageous, bizarre, and extremely funny."
Rabbit, Run (Penguin Modern Classics)
"The boorish, sexist and tiresomely lecherous Harry Rabbit Armstrong, may not be representative of the typical American male of the 50s, but the novel is a smashing read."
"Impetuous, scabrously funny and, at times, heart-wrenchingly melancholy, the novel is a landmark in modern Jewish American literature."
Call it Sleep (Penguin Modern Classics)
"This multifaceted novel of Jewish immigrant life at the turn of the last century is remarkable as much for its black humour as for its innovative use of language."
The Tin Men
"A dazzling comedy of hidden vanities. I cant put it better than Anthony Burgess: 'One knew, sourly, that his book was going to be funny; one did not see how it could be so continuously funny..."
Brothers (Abacus Books)
"This epic novel traces the lives of over four generations of a Jewish family. Uninhibited in its passion, extremely forceful in its prose, reading Brothers is a profound experience."
"A highly stylistic, poignant, and compassionate work of art, a story of betrayal of hopes, the novel can be enjoyed at several levels. A masterpiece."
Pale Fire (Penguin Modern Classics)
"This devilishly funny, multilayered and satirical novel, written in four sections, each one as real as the other, is rightly considered the forerunner of postmodernist novels."
The Crying Of Lot 49
"A telling commentary on the cultural chaos and the crisis of communication. Written in the 1960s the themes of this moody novel with its apocalyptic undertones are relevant even today."
Slaughterhouse 5, or The Children's Crusade - A Duty-dance with Death
"A superlative expression of themes that preoccupied Vonnegut all his life: mans persistent attempt to adjust rationally to the unthinkable."
Earthly Powers (Vintage Classics)
"Endlessly inventive, breathtaking in its scope, and adorned with luminescent language, this is a work of the highest order."
Sophie's Choice (Vintage Classics)
"Styrons take on the Holocaust is a heartbreaking tale of loss, guilt and, above all the terrible choices humans have to make the consequences of which haunt them for the rest of their lives."
The Singapore Grip
"A brilliant novel that is precisely plotted and beautifully paced. It is vivid, multidimensional and brilliantly written. A work of a writer at the zenith of his powers."
Fear Of Flying
"An unrestrained, robustious and libidinous tale of one womans self-discovery and sexual liberation. A watershed in feminist fiction."
"Atwoods semi-autobiographical novel of girlhood trauma, secrets and shifting alliances is a riveting if eerie coming of age novel."
The Painted Bird (Kosinski, Jerzy)
"A remarkable, if controversial, coming of age novel with the World War II as its backdrop. It is also a commentary on the dark side of human nature"
The Beginning of Spring
"Set in an English community in Moscow at the turn of the last century, the novel is a brilliant comedy of manners characterised by gentle wit and an ambiguous conclusion. Thoroughly absorbing."
In The Heart Of The Country
"A deeply harrowing tale of a woman who is slowly losing her mind on a farm, in the middle of nowhere. The stream of consciousness technique abets the fierceness of the narrative."
Expensive People (VMC)
"A powerful critique of the American culture, the novel powerfully evocates the confusion, despair, indignation of the young."
