9780140186918: Loving, Living and Partygoing (Penguin Twentieth Century Classics)

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY SEBASTIAN FAULKS. Henry Green, whom W. H. Auden called 'the finest living English novelist', is the most neglected writer of the last century and the one most deserving of rediscovery by a new generation. This volume brings together three of Henry Green's intensely original novels. Green explored class distinctions through the medium of love. Loving brilliantly contrasts the lives of servants and masters in an Irish castle during World War Two, Living of workers and owners in a Birmingham iron foundry. Party Going is a brilliant comedy of manners, presenting a party of wealthy travellers stranded by fog in a London railway hotel while throngs of workers await trains in the station below.
