Description

For nine years, John Dowell and his wife have spent the summer season at a German spa town in the company of the respectable Ashburnhams. Behind the placid exterior of their lives lie the destructive passions of men and women. When Dowell's world breaks apart, he tells his story as intimately as to a silent listener across the fireplace of a country cottage. 'Who in this world knows anything of any other heart -- or of his own?'.show more

Review Text

A re-issue of the novel Ford Madox Ford considered his finest work, with an introductory interpretation by Mark Schorer. There will again be critical notice rather than easy sales. The novel originally appeared in 1914. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
