Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“An immortal achievement . . . it is, at all levels, readability itself.”  —Financial Times, on The Forsyte Saga series

“Just because they were set in a world of frock-coats and ornate drawing rooms, we should not be blind to their modern dilemmas . . . the satire is sharp, the dialogue, elegant and witty, and the characterization—dazzling.”  —Scotsman

“A cracking good story . . . compulsive, as well as very modern and outrageous.”  —Sunday Times

“Still a terrific read, a satisfying, long, absorbing family story…which knocks spots off its pale imitators.”  —Susan Hill
