Product Details


“After Evelyn Waugh, what? The answer is Angus Wilson, a master of mimicry, diction, intention and wit.” —Edmund Wilson 

“One of the five greatest novels of the century.” —Anthony Burgess

“…brilliant and ambitious…In every generation one or two novelists revise the conventional picture of English character. Mr. Wilson does this.” —V.S. Pritchett, New Statesman and Nation

“It’s Dickens for the smart set, or Edmund Wilson with a dash of savage silliness.” —Susan Salter Reynolds, The Los Angeles Times

“So read this splendid novel and you will find yourself not only entertained and at times vastly amused, but actually wiser about human nature. You will not only experience vicariously some interesting slices of postwar English life, but you will be conducted into a world of fine moral and ethical distinctions, which are this novelist’s particular forte. Much wisdom and humanity are to be found in the pages ofAnglo-Saxon Attitudes.” —Martin Rubin, The Washington Times
