9780099573623: The Chateau

It is 1948 and a young American couple arrive in France for a holiday, full of anticipation and enthusiasm. But the countryside and people are war-battered, and their reception at the Chateau Beaumesnil is not all the open-hearted Americans could wish for.

Review:

"Delicious and dead-on... All the embarrassments and gratifications of European travel are preserved in the amber of Maxwell's much pondered, seemingly casual prose." ( New Yorker)

"As the voices of Austen, Turgenev and Tolstoy have survived, so will Maxwell's. There aren't many truly great writers among us. William Maxwell is one of them" ( The Times)

"It's hard not to see it as a work of genius" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"His gentle urbanity is a joy" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"He combines educated intelligent and instinctive apprehension of human complexity in a way that would have earned Henry James' approval. William Maxwell is the very model of what a novelist should be" ( Independent on Sunday)

Book Description:

Maxwell is the unsung hero of American literature. This is about the charms and disenchantments of travel.
