Description - Nothing, Doting, Blindness by Henry Green
WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY D.J. TAYLOR Three brilliant novels which span Henry Green s career as a novelist and display his unique talents as a writer. Nothing is a tale of the merry-go-round of love, marriage and infidelity, and the ceaseless intergenerational tussle of innocence versus experience. Doting sets the middle-aged male infatuation for pretty girls against the comfortable affection of wives/old friends, delving into the complications of burgeoning affairs and boring marriages. In Blindness, Green s first novel, a young man is blinded in a senseless accident but thereafter discovers new imaginative powers.
