Read full description of the books:



Siamo negli anni Venti. Una banda variopinta di esemplari della jeunesse dorée inglese, che il ricchissimo e affascinante Max ha invitato a sue spese a una partita di piacere in Francia, si è data appuntamento alla stazione. Un topos della narrativa, insomma. Ma – ci avverte V.S. Pritchett – Green appartiene alla «vena pazza» della letteratura inglese. Così una fitta nebbia grava sulla stazione (e sulla storia), una sostanza grigia che pervade subdolamente ogni cosa, provocando scompiglio e disorientamento: i treni infatti non partono, e ben presto si raduna una massa di pendolari potenzialmente pericolosi che induce i festaioli a rifugiarsi nell’albergo sopra la stazione. «Dalla prospettiva del capestro», costoro hanno modo di osservare quella che ha tutta l’aria di una mandria in attesa di essere macellata, con le valigie sparse e variamente pencolanti nell’oscurità come lapidi di un abnorme cimitero. E tutti si scoprono persi – ma non desisteranno dalla loro principale attività, che è civettare e sparlare, complici come sono nello sforzo di mantenere viva la conversazione. «Green» sono ancora parole di Pritchett «è dentro lo zoo umano, assorto, e di tanto in tanto lancia un'occhiata triste e stupefatta alle sbarre di cui si era momentaneamente dimenticato».

Read information about the author

Ebook Partenza in gruppo read Online! Henry Green was the nom de plume of Henry Vincent Yorke.

Green was born near Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, into an educated family with successful business interests. His father Vincent Wodehouse Yorke, the son of John Reginald Yorke and Sophia Matilda de Tuyll de Serooskerken, was a wealthy landowner and industrialist in Birmingham. His mother, Hon. Maud Evelyn Wyndham, was daughter of the second Baron Leconfield. Green grew up in Gloucestershire and attended Eton College, where he became friends with fellow pupil Anthony Powell and wrote most of his first novel, Blindness. He studied at Oxford University and there began a friendship and literary rivalry with Evelyn Waugh.

Green left Oxford in 1926 without taking a degree and returned to Birmingham to engage in his family business. He started by working with the ordinary workers on the factory floor of his family's factory, which produced beer-bottling machines, and later became the managing director. During this time he gained the experience to write Living, his second novel, which he worked on during 1927 and 1928. In 1929, he married his second cousin, the Hon. Adelaide Biddulph, also known as 'Dig'. They were both great-grandchildren of the 1st Baron Leconfield. Their son Sebastian was born in 1934. In 1940, Green published Pack My Bag, which he regarded as a nearly-accurate autobiography. During World War II Green served as a fireman in the Auxiliary Fire Service and these wartime experiences are echoed in his novel Caught; they were also a strong influence on his subsequent novel, Back.

Green's last published novel was Doting (1952); this was the end of his writing career. In his later years, until his death in 1973, he became increasingly focused on studies of the Ottoman Empire, and became alcoholic and reclusive. Politically, Green was a traditional Tory throughout his life.
