Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A modern classic restored to print — the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel that charts the diminishing fortunes of a distinguished Boston family in the early years of the 20th century. Sweeping us into the inner sanctum of Boston society, into the Beacon Hill town houses and exclusive private clubs where only the city's wealthiest and most powerful congregate, the novel gives us — through the story of one family and its patriarch, the recently deceased George Apley — the portrait of an entire society in transition. Gently satirical and rich with drama, the novel moves from the Gilded Age to the Great Depression as it projects George Apley's world — and subtly reveals a life in which success and accomplishment mask disappointment and regret, a life of extreme and enviable privilege that is nonetheless an imperfect life.

Synopsis:

Featuring a new introduction, this contemporary satire of turn-of-the-century Boston, which was awarded the Pulitizer Prize for Fiction in 1938, traces the life of George Apley, a wealthy businessman who sacrifices his individuality to social custom and tradition. Reprint. 12,000 first printing.
