Good Soldier, Paperback (November 2016)
'All the world was mad around her and she herself, agonized, took on the complexion of a mad woman; of a woman very wicked.' In 'the saddest story I have ever heard', a naive American abroad unfolds a devastating tale of two seemingly respectable Edwardian marriages destroyed by infidelity and lies."
Joseph Conrad, Paperback (June 2013)
First published in 1924, this unorthodox and impressionistic biography is a glittering portrayal of the author's literary co-conspirator, Joseph Conrad.
All Else is Folly, Paperback (January 2013)» View all books by Ford Madox Ford
All Else Is Folly is a living memory of the Canadian experience in the First World War. Praised by Sir Robert Borden, this novel both commemorates and mourns the Canadian soldiers who fought for peace in a landscape of treachery.
UK Kirkus Review » My favourite novel is Ford Madox Ford's The Good Soldier. It has been called the best constructed novel in the English language and this I suppose partly accounts for my passion. I have read it numberless times, yet find it hard to say what it is about: a man who has certainly, among other things, been a good soldier; his wife who is beautiful and stern and a pillar of rectitude; the sad narrator whose wicked wife won't sleep with him on account of her bad heart; the 'girl' - the innocent, gentle, timid girl that the good soldier is in love with, beyond reason, beyond all bounds, into madness. You will have to read it and see if you can come up with a better description. Review by Ruth Rendell, the crime writer, whose novels include 'The House of Stairs' under the name Barbara Vine (Kirkus UK)
US Kirkus Review » A re-issue of the novel Ford Madox Ford considered his finest work, with an introductory interpretation by Mark Schorer. There will again be critical notice rather than easy sales. The novel originally appeared in 1914. (Kirkus Reviews)
