9780099285090: Loving (Vintage Classics)

One of his most admired works, LOVING describes life above and below stairs in an Irish country house during the Second World War. In the absence of their employers the Tennants, the servants enact their own battles and conflict amid rumours about the war in Europe; invading one another's provinces of authority to create an anarchic environment of self-seeking behaviour, pilfering, gossip and love.

Review:

"Heartbreaking, funny and written with such luminous prose - he's the most brilliant, and neglected, of English writers" (Helen Cross)

From the Publisher:

With an introduction by Sebastian Faulks
'His novels made more of a stylistic impact upon me than those of any writer living or dead' John Updike

One of his most admired works, Loving describes life above and below stairs in an Irish country house during the Second World War. In the absence of their employers the Tennants, the servants enact their own battles and conflict amid rumours about the war in Europe; invading one another’s provinces of authority to create an anarchic environment of self-seeking behaviour, pilfering, gossip and love.

‘Mr Green has done nothing better’ Alan Pryce-Jones, Observer

‘One of the most interesting of our contemporary novelists…Mr Green’s novels reproduce, as few English novels do, the actual sensations of living’ Elizabeth Bowen, Tatler

‘Green’s books remain solid and glittering as gems…They are not, like so many contemporary novels, mere slices of life but highly successful attempts at making art give meaning to life’ Anthony Burgess

‘Loving stands, together with Living, as the masterpiece of this disciplined, poetic and grimly realistic, witty and melancholy, amorous and austere voluptuary…comic, richly entertaining…haunting and poetic…whereas Living is the most compassionate work of one never overtly compassionate, Loving has a tenderness unusual in this tender and harsh writer’ Rosamond Lehmann, Times Literary Supplement
