Краткое описание

Old Filth: Old Filth Trilogy.

(Finalist for the Orange Prize and a New York Times Notable Book of 2006) Sir Edward Feathers has had a brilliant career, from his early days as a lawyer in Southeast Asia (where he earned the inelegant nickname Old Filth—"Failed in London, Try Hong Kong") to his final working days as a respected judge at the English bar, in this first book of the Old Filth trilogy. Yet through it all he has carried with him the wounds of a difficult childhood as a "raj orphan," left with a cruel step-mother in Wales. Now an octogenarian widower in Dorset, Feathers is finally free from the regimen of work and the sentimental scaffolding that has sustained him throughout his life, while his ever-more vivid memories of the past illuminate Britain's own journey through the 20th century. The popular and prolific Jane Gardam remains one of England's best-kept literary secrets; she has twice won the Whitbread Award, among numerous other awards and nominations for her more than 30 books, yet remains all but unknown in the United States. Her trilogy of novels about retired barrister Edward "Old Filth" Feathers, his wife Betty, and his rival Terence Veneering may well be the best place to begin your appreciation of Gardam."Old Filth belongs in the Dickensian pantheon of memorable characters.... The miracle of Old Filth is that its hero eludes social or psychological pigeonholing.... He is also triumphantly his own man, with a life full of unexpected turns and events of high comedy.... Gardam's novel is an anthology of bittersweet scenes, rendered by a novelist at the top of her form."—NYTBR
