PAPERBACK

November 20, 2014

John Dowell, the narrator of this novel, is attempting to recount the saddest story he has ever heard. Interrupted incessantly by his own haphazard ramblings and casual musings, he reflects on the time he and his now-deceased wife Florence spent in the company of Edward and Leonora Ashburnham as he attempts to unpick the complex nature of the relationship between these two couples. We slowly discover that the wealth, the good intentions and the seeming respectability of these people serve to conceal deep fissures of temptation and corruption in their characters.

The Good Soldier is so clearly the work of a master of composition and a remarkably rewarding and unique reading experience. A masterwork of composition and complexity, this book is a poignant look at infidelity and mortality under the veneer of twentieth century wealth and respectability.

About the Cover: In a similar fashion to the narrative, the impossible castle challenges society's idea of normality - what appears conventional and steady is in fact a disorientating and turbulent experience.
