The Good Soldier A Tale of Passion

£14.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

The Good Soldier is a masterpiece of twentieth-century fiction, an inspiration for many later, distinguished writers, including Graham Greene. Set before the First World War, it tells the tale of two wealthy and sophisticated couples, one English, one American, as they travel, socialise, and take the waters in the spa towns of Europe. They are 'playing the game', in style. That game has begun to unravel, however, and with compelling attention to the comic, as well as the tragic, results the American narrator reveals his growing awareness of the sexual intrigues and emotional betrayals that lie behind its façade.
A beautifully crafted edition, held in a black slip case, bound in a grey-green cloth, the volume has a black and gold design on front and spine, reminiscent of both a stylised sun and interlocking hearts. Minor scuffing to the matt surface of the slip case, however the book appears new, enhanced by Philip Bannister's evocative illustrations.
