Description

Préface
From the lauded, bestselling author of the Cazalet Chronicles, The Beautiful Visit is the first novel from one of the most beloved British writers, Elizabeth Jane Howard.

Auteur
Elizabeth Jane Howard was the author of fifteen highly acclaimed novels. The Cazalet Chronicles - The Light Years, Marking Time, Confusion, Casting Off and All Change - have become established as modern classics and have been adapted for a major BBC television series and for BBC Radio 4. In 2002 Macmillan published Elizabeth Jane Howard's autobiography, Slipstream. In that same year she was awarded a CBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours List. She died, aged ninety, at home in Suffolk on 2 January 2014.

Texte du rabat

Life had been distinctly lacking in possibilities - until The Visit. But, ever afterwards, just remembering the smell of the Lancing's house would enrapture her, taking her back to that very first day when Lucy and Gerald had picked her up from the station . . .

All the longing, excitement and poignant comedy of adolescence is captured in Elizabeth Jane Howard's first novel about a young girl growing up in the years surrounding the First World War.

'Interesting and original . . . Howard has true imagination and a kind of sensuous power. She creates a wonderful atmosphere of uneasiness and oppression; she can also draw scenes with ironic brilliance: hers seems to me to be a remarkable talent' Antonia White, New Statesman

'Distinctive, self-assured and remarkably sensual: she has always been a writer to whom smells and flavours matter a great deal' Guardian



Résumé

All the longing, excitement and poignant comedy of adolescence are captured in Elizabeth Jane Howard's first novel The Beautiful Visit, about a young girl growing up in the years around the First World War.

Life had been distinctly lacking in possibilities until The Visit. But, ever afterwards, just remembering the smell of the Lancings' house would enrapture her, taking her back to that very first day when Lucy and Gerald had picked her up from the station . . .


Beginning and ending with a visit to the same family, it is a novel full of love, loss, and the ever-lasting effect of war.
