ANGUS WILSON - Anglo-Saxon Attitudes

Title: Anglo-Saxon Attitudes
Description: Secker & Warburg, 1979. Gekartonneerd. Pp: 412. Reprint edition. nStill considered Wilson's finest work, Anglo-Saxon Attitudes chronicles the middle age of historian Gerald Middleton, a sixty-year-old self-defined failure, and of the most hopeless kind, "a failure with a conscience". Separated from his wife and mistrusted by his own children, Middleton soon finds himself mired in one of the cruelest archeological hoaxes of the century. Hosting a colorful cast of memorable characters from Middleton's gay son, who is dominated by his overbearing mother, to Dollie, his unsatisfied mistress and accessory to the great hoax, Wilson depicts the hilarious foibles of English society with an unexpected, bittersweet compassion.
