Product Description:

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY ZOE HELLER

When John Dowell and his wife befriend Edward and Leonora Ashburnham they appear to be the perfect couple. He is a distinguished soldier and she is beautiful and intelligent. However, what lies beneath the surface of their marriage is far more sinister and their influence leads John into a tragic drama that threatens to destroy everything he cares about.

Review:

"The narrative casts a mesmeric spell... intelligent, beautifully written, heartfelt and true, and a great book" ( Sunday Times)

"I would rather have written Ford Madox Ford's novel than all the books I have written. After reading it a dozen times, I still find a mystery at its heart... an exercise in elegance and a triumph of structure. I am always imitating it and always failing. The prose makes my heart ache with envy" (Ruth Rendell Guardian)

"An astounding novel" ( The Times)

"Sometimes the best presents come in small packages...masterful" ( Daily Telegraph)

"A central figure, artistically and influentially, in the modern movement...a masterpiece of Impressionism, as well as of intricate plotting, technical manipulation and powerful irony" ( Guardian)
