Product description


"Here's cause for rejoicing among old Bowen hands... Extremely intelligent and helpful... the best kind of advocate any novelist could desire" (Sunday Times)

"Hermione Lee is especially good on Bowen's Burkean sense of the 18th century... Ms Lee deals with complexities in tactful detail... convincing in her analyses of individual novels" (Observer)

"An intelligent, persuasive study... The most illuminating kind of criticism... an intelligent vision of the fiction [and] a balanced sense of literary context... Elizabeth Bowen makes us consider a distinguished writer anew" (New Statesman)

Book Description

'Hermione Lee, in her indispensable, scholarly, penetrating and sympathetic study of Bowen's work, puts her finger on the tap-root of her author's powers' - London Review of Books
