Product Details


“To those of my generation he was the most important new novelist to appear in our young life. We were proud of his early and immediate success, like men who have spotted the right horse.” — Graham Greene

“I have talent, but he has genius.” — Evelyn Waugh

“[Futility] is a living book….it is warm. One can put it down and it goes on breathing.” — Katherine Mansfield

“Why was there no shouting about Gerhardie’s Futility–shouting to reach the suburbs and the country towns? True, devastating. A wonderful book.” — H.G. Wells

“Mr. Gerhardie’s novel is extremely modern; but it has bulk and form, a recognisable orbit, and that promise of more to come that one always feels latent in the beginnings of the born novelist” — Edith Wharton

‘William Gerhardie is our Gogol’s Overcoat. We all came out of him.’ — Olivia Manning
‘In my opinion Gerhardie has genius.’ — Arnold Bennett

‘He is a comic writer of genius … but his art is profoundly serious.’ — C. P. Snow
