Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This monumental novel, divided into four separate books, celebrates the end of an era, the irrevocable destruction of the comfortable, predictable society that vanished during World War I.

About the Author

Ford Madox Ford (1873–1939), was born in England. Author of The Good Soldier, Parade’s End, and The Fifth Queen, he is also remembered for founding two influential literary journals and championing many of the leading modernist writers of the day.

"It has been remarked that the peculiarly English habit of self-suppression in matters of the emotions puts the Englishman at a great disadvantage in moments of unusual stresses."
I had to read this for an English class and never made it through, so I finally gave it another shot. Blimey, it's long. It's actually four novels (nerds call it a tetralogy): "Some Do Not. . .," "No More Parades," "A Man Could Stand Up-," and "The Last Post." Coming in at over 900 pages, it was a real slog for me and I really had no interest, unlike some Americans, in boring British people being boring (see "Downtown Abbey"). Set during the first world war, it follows the aristocratic and boring Christopher Tietjens, who fights in the war and is in a love triangle with his faithless wife and his mistress. It was made into a miniseries a few years back, which may have sparked renewed interest in the book, which is highly acclaimed, but was not my cup of tea. Ford's other well-know book is "The Good Soldier." Fun fact 1: Ford changed his name from Ford Hermmann Hueffer to honor his grandfather, the painter Ford Madox Brown. Fun fact 2: Ford was friends with fellow modernist Joseph Conrad, and they collaborated on several books.
