Two couples, two marriages—both are seemingly perfect, both are falling apart. Beneath the surface gentility of American John Dowell with his wife Florence and the landed grace of Edward and Leonora lie fictions and deceit. There are secret desires, hidden power-games, suicides, and madness. Everyone is hiding something; even the narrator can’t be trusted. Brilliantly inventive, tragic, and ironic, The Good Soldier is one of the great novels of the twentieth century.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Although its narrative hook—the philandering of an otherwise noble man—no longer shocks, its unerring cadences and doleful inevitabilities proclaim an enduring appeal.” Amazon.com
“Published in 1915, this intricately woven classic has garnered widespread critical acclaim. Versatile narrator Kerry Shale well understands its tone, atmosphere, and subtext, as well as the character and crisis of its narrator/antihero.” AudioFile
