WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY D. J. TAYLOR

These three brilliant novels span Henry Green's career as a novelist and display his unique talents as a writer. Nothing is a tale of the merry-go-round of love, marriage and infidelity, and the ceaseless tussle of innocence versus experience. Doting sets the middle-aged male infatuation for pretty girls against the comfortable affection of wives and old friends, delving into the complications of burgeoning affairs and boring marriages. In Blindness, Green's first novel, a young man is blinded in a senseless accident but thereafter discovers new imaginative powers.

Review:

"The finest living English novelist" (W. H. Auden)

"Experimental in tone; spare and sensuous by turns, irradiated by stylistic fireworks... his novels are dazzling exercises in form" (D.J Taylor Independent)

"One cannot think of another modernist writer so neglected and yet so warmly humane" ( The Times)

"Henry Green's novels are among the most dazzling, inventive and individual of the last century... his writing is wonderfully seductive - as oblique, suggestive and full of surprises as life itself" ( Daily Telegraph)

"The most curious imagination in the English novel" (V.S. Pritchett)
