Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A social satire of epic proportions and one that does not suffer by comparison with Thackeray’s Vanity Fair…[A] comedy of manners, convincing both in its fidelity to life and as a work of art.” New York Times
“If Galsworthy devoted himself to writing prose, David Case devoted himself to reading it out loud…Case threw himself passionately into every part, playing women so convincingly that I remember checking the audiobook box once to remind myself of the narrator’s gender…He and Galsworthy can both look back across the River Styx with a shared sense that theirs was a job well done.” AudioFile
“This posthumous work is one of the best of the author’s novels.” Literary Digest, Vol. 116
