SOUTH RIDING Winifred Holtby WORLD BOOKS 1949

About this book: “The drama of English local government captured my imagination. What fascinated me was the discovery that apparently academic and impersonal resolutions passed in a county council were daily revolutionising the lives of those men and women whom they affected. The complex tangle of motives prompting public decisions, the unforeseen consequences of their enactment on private lives appeared to me as part of the unseen pattern of the English landscape. What I have tried to do in South Riding is to trace that pattern…”

What Reviews say: Sylvia Lynd in ‘Harpers Bazaar’ “One of the most fascinating and beautiful novels that have appeared in my lifetime. A novel on the grand scale without a dull page or a false page in it.”
