From the bestselling author of The Cazelet Chronicles comes Elizabeth Jane Howard's The Long View.

Moving backwards in time from 1950 to 1926, The Long View paints an unusually revealing portrait of a marriage. It traces the lives of Antonia and Conrad Fleming through the eyes of Antonia, as she looks back on her married life and unravels her choices - good and bad - and the motivations behind them . . .

An uncannily authentic take on matrimony from the long view - from both the outside in and present to past - Antonia and Conrad Fleming's story is as extraordinary as it is prosaic, as gut-wrenching as it is exhilarating.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A beautifully written and richly perceptive novel. Miss Howard has a gift for epigrammatic dialogue; she cuts to the heart of motive or relationship with delicate precision * Daily Telegraph *
When I read The Long View . . . I realized that I would never write anything of such subtlety and penetration: there was no point in even hoping to write a novel if this was the standard of excellence -- Andrew Brown * Guardian *

“Stick with it!”

I nearly fell at the first hurdle with this book; I was bored and irritated by the behaviour of the over-privileged and tiresome 'children' in the first part of the novel but gritted my teeth and carried on.... More
