An exploration of class distinctions through the medium of love. Set in an iron foundry in Birmingham, this novel grittily contrasts the lives of the workers and the owners.Review:
""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--writer." - "TLS" "Green's works live with ever-brightening intensity--it's like dancing with Nijinsky or Astaire, who lead you effortlessly on." - "The Wall Street Journal" "Green's novels-- have become, with time, photographs of a vanished England--Green's human qualities - his love of work and laughter; his absolute empathy; his sense of splendour amid loss - make him a precious witness to any age." - John Updike "Green's books are solid and glittering as gems." - Anthony Burgess
