Overview

Jane Gardam's Old Filth Trilogy Boxed Set by Jane Gardam

Jane Gardam's beloved Old Filfth Trilogy—her masterpiece, Old Filfth, The Man in the Wooden Hat, and Last Friends—are here presented in a box set perfect for holiday gift-giving. Emotionally distant but highly successful Edward Feathers, his beautiful wife Betty, and his devilishly handsome professional rival (and Betty's one-time lover) Edward Veneering are the anchors of this series, with each novel focusing on a differenct character. Feathers was a "raj orphan"—children bown in Far East British colonies and raised in England—while Veneering's own path to legal renown is a Dickensian as his name. Filth and his circle tell a bittersweet tale of enduring friendship while contending with the disappointments and consolations of age as a once-insurmountable empire declines around them. Told with Jane Gardam's customary wit, the Old Filth trilogy is a deeply humane and often comic portrait of aging and a reminder that the experiences we choose to take with us in our twilight years are as unforgettable—and unpredictable as life itself.
