Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

People lie to themselves and lie to each other, and the lies they tell become their lives. Tom Wilcher, the hero of the second volume of Joyce Cary's First Trilogy, has been at various times a political activist, a closefisted lawyer, a self-sacrificing brother, and a dirty old man. But as he faces death his unfulfilled spiritual yearnings are uppermost in his mind.

Synopsis:

New York Review Books has put back into print Joyce Cary's legendary First Trilogy for the first time in more than thirty years. Each of the three volumes — Herself Surprised, To Be a Pilgrim, and The Horse's Mouth — can be read entirely on its own. However, when read together the books, with their strikingly different narrators, afford new and startling perspectives on each other. In the end, the trilogy offers a sweeping vision of humanity in all its fallenness and freedom. It is the masterwork of a writer of dazzling insight and verbal resource, and one of the landmarks of twentieth-century fiction.
