    Review ☆ Back Author Henry Green 108 Back Author Henry GreOne of those books that reveals itself only once you've finally put it down but this was well worth the effort I reckon I'm a fool for this era of British novels and films and Green captures that sense of dislocation of wartime Britain with a narrative that balances a light touch with an unspoken but always present horror It felt at times a bit disjointed but eventually I came to see that as reflecting Charley's own condition; shellshocked grief stricken thrown back into civilian life and unable to confront the past sounds heavy going but this only really comes across cumulatively whilst the writing itself is funny frothy melancholy with wonderfully authentic dialogue and a kind of obsessive regard for words and their many meani

    Review ☆ Back Author Henry Green 108 Back Author Henry GreThe one word title suggests a lot what to make of a man who has lost something in war and back finds he has lost something at home The former is his leg; the latter is his girl Rose Both goneThe plot what happens upon his return is actually uite interesting And I won't spoil it here But that deeper meaning eluded mePerhaps that's because I couldn't get into the 18th century story within the story that intrudes just past the midway That may have explained things But I glazed overI got though all the different usages of the word rose noun adjective verb And of course proper name But that didn't help either

    Review ☆ Back Author Henry Green 108 Back Author Henry GreThis is such an exceptional book beautifully strange and challenging and yet totally accessible at the same time It seems to be happening as you are reading it because the writing is so simultaneously perfect and yet also natural and ever changing There are sentences composed with such grace and originality that I kept having to close the book and look away and let them ripple in my mind like water disturbed by a stone This book will not be for everyone but it is sort of like a combination of Kafka and Austen so if you think that would appeal to you you must read it Read it right away

    Review ☆ Back Author Henry Green 108 Back Author Henry GreI received an ARC from the publisher via EdelweissThe premise of this Green novel is deceptively simple Charley Summer recently released from a POW camp in Germany during World War II is repatriated back into England Although Charley suffers from a severed leg for which he must wear a prosthesis his greatest source of pain is the love that he lost while he was in that German prison camp Rose a woman with whom he was having a passionate love affair dies from an illness before Charley is sent home We first meet Charley when he is trying to find Rose’s grave in an English churchyard and we immediately discover that the plot is much complicated than we were first led to believeCharley is shell shocked grief stricken and disoriented as he tries to settle into a job in London and reconnect with old acuaintances He visits Rose’s parents Mr and Mrs Grant who are also having a hard time dealing with the death of their daughter amidst sirens and bombings Mrs G

    Review ☆ Back Author Henry Green 108 Back Author Henry GreHenry Green's Back belongs with Patrick Hamilton's books and others on the English boarding house novels shelf though not as bleak as Hamilton or Julian Maclaren Ross The back of the title is from the Second World War to a mid 40s England which is economically and emotionally eually straitened For all that this book has a transcendently joyful uality within a somewhat narro

    Review ☆ Back Author Henry Green 108 Back Author Henry GreSo poignantly beautiful so much tragedy so calmly depicted I found George Toles' critiue in the back of the book particularly illuminating putting into words a few of the novel's sensations that I couldn't place myself Pain insinuates itself into every corner of the unfolding rural landscape yet it is a soft pain a pain nestled in softness It is as though the reader were treading backward through the setting mildly anxious trying to be silent over ground that leaves a suishing imprint with every footfall'Would definitely recommend to anyone interested in post war literature as well as anyone looking for something that is at once readable and defiant of convention
