Publisher Comments:

"A Tale of Passion," as its subtitle declares, The Good Soldier relates the complex social and sexual relationships between two couples, one English, one American, and the growing awareness by the American narrator John Dowell of the intrigues and passions behind their orderly Edwardian facade. It is the attitude of Dowell, his puzzlement, uncertainty, and the seemingly haphazard manner of his narration that make the book so powerful and mysterious. Despite its catalogue of death, insanity, and despair, the novel has many comic moments, and has inspired the work of several distinguished writers, including Graham Greene. This is the only annotated edition available.

Synopsis:

Exploring the complex social and sexual relationships between two couples, one English, one American, this novel was regarded by its author as "the only novel of mine that I considered....at all to count". The novel has moments of comedy despite its catalogue of despair and tragedy.

Includes bibliographical references (p. [xxxvii]-xxxix)
