9780140147308: The Shooting Party

It is 1913 - just prior to England's entry into World War I - and Edwardian England is about to vanish into history. A group of men and women gather at Sir Randolph Nettleby's estate for a shooting party. Opulent, adulterous, moving assuredly through the rituals of eating and slaughter, they are a dazzlingly obtuse and brilliantly decorative finale of an era.

Review:

Poised, wry, lovable, informative . . . An utterly complete rendering of a way of life.” Gail Godwin, author of Queen of the Underworld

A beautifully crafted novel, remarkably visual and evocative. The characters are caught in stunning images and tableaux that convey the essence of their natures, the sweep of their emotions.” The Washington Post

The Shooting Party is a lovely piece of writing, in which subtlety, irony, and close observation abound.” Larry McMurtry
