9780099282549: Alms For Oblivion Vol III: v. 3

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: solidiers and dons, men of business, politician and writers. Full of hearty rancour, they form a scathing chronicle of the upper echelons of postwar English society.

Review:

"Majestic, scurrilous and scabrous... Raven's novels are joyous in their characterisation, wit and erudition....truffling in the fertile fields of soldiery, academia, business, politics and publishing. Raven's world - the upper middle class and upper class - is peopled by some of the vilest, funniest characters in English literature." ( Observer)

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

"A truly powerful vision of evil and corruption. This is an achievement which can hardly be dismissed as mere entertainment" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"Exciting, sleazy, cynical and funny... Indulgently bizarre sex scenes rub shoulders with sharply observed human dilemmas and relentlessly exposed psychological and political manipulation" ( Sunday Times)
