Editorial Reviews:
Review:
"...Miss Bowen can cook the vulgar English to the same crispness to which she treats their betters. But 'Death of the Heart' is too packed, too brilliant, for its own good. What Miss Bowen lacks is a kind of humility."

Louise Bogan, Nation, 01/28/39

Review:
"Critics generally consider 'The Death of the Heart' her best novel; some call it one of the best English novels of the century."

Publishers Weekly, 03/19/1973

Book Description: Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group Inc, United States, 2000. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Anchor Books. 204 x 133 mm. Brand New Book. The Death of the Heart is perhaps Elizabeth Bowen s best-known book. As she deftly and delicately exposes the cruelty that lurks behind the polished surfaces of conventional society, Bowen reveals herself as a masterful novelist who combines a sense of humor with a devastating gift for divining human motivations. In this piercing story of innocence betrayed set in the thirties, the orphaned Portia is stranded in the sophisticated and politely treacherous world of her wealthy half-brother s home in London.There she encounters the attractive, carefree cad Eddie. To him, Portia is at once child and woman, and her fears her gushing love. To her, Eddie is the only reaason to be alive. But when Eddie follows Portia to a sea-side resort, the flash of a cigarette lighter in a darkened cinema illuminates a stunning romantic betrayal--and sets in motion one of the most moving and desperate flights of the heart in modern literature.
