I didn't connect with Mrs Eliot. Are we meant to sympathize with her circumstances or find her annoying? Both maybe. Aug 23, Cary rated it really liked it. Dated in some ways the narrator's and characters' psychological analysis especially so but an interesting read. Mar 01, Steve Dewey rated it liked it Shelves: fiction , novel. A very slow first third, a middling middle, and a much more interesting last third.

Angus Wilson. The work situation was stressful and led to a nervous breakdown, for which he was treated by Rolf-Werner Kosterlitz.
He returned to the Museum after the end of the War, and it was there that he met Tony Garrett born , who was to be his companion for the rest of his life. Wilson's first publication was a collection of short stories, The Wrong Set , followed quickly by the daring novel Hemlock and After, which was a great success, prompting invitations to lecture in Europe.
He worked as a reviewer, and in he resigned from the British Museum to write full-time although his financial situation did not justify doing so and moved to Suffolk. He was knighted in , and was President of the Royal Society of Literature from to His remaining years were affected by ill health, and he died of a stroke at a nursing home in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, on 31 May , aged His writing, which has a strongly satirical vein, expresses his concern with preserving a liberal humanistic outlook in the face of fashionable doctrinaire temptations.
Several of his works were adapted for television.
