9780099268147: Alms for Oblivion: Vol 1 (Omnibus Edition: The Rich Pay Late; Friends in Low Places; The Sabre Squadron; Fielding Gray)

ALMS FOR OBLIVION is a series of ten novels, all telling separate stories but at the same time linked together by the characters they have in common: soldiers and dons, men of business, politicians and writers. Full of hearty rancour, they form a scathing chronicle of the upper echelons of postwar English society, and this omnibus edition contains the first four volumes of the celebrated series: FIELDING GRAY, FRIENDS IN LOW PLACES, THE SABRE SQUADRON and THE RICH PAY LATE.

Review:

"Raven's unique vision of our times - classes battling, corruption raging, ideas flashing - is not only valid but valuable. He spins webs of chance, intrigue and wit to ensnare civilised values and trap the truth. It's high time we gave this very curious genius a loud, warm welcome." (David Hughes Mail on Sunday)

"A ready made cult waiting to be discovered" ( Spectator)

"Cracking entertainment... Dangerously, deliciously addictive" ( Daily Telegraph)

"Raven's gusto, the robustness of his style and his powerful, if quirky, intelligence all held me rapt" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"Sparkling and fizzing... Raven has the mind of a cad and the pen of an angel" ( Guardian)
