From the Back Cover:

"Loving stands, together with Living, as the masterpiece of this disciplined, poetic and grimly realistic, witty and melancholy, amorous and austere voluptuary--comic, richly entertaining--haunting and poetic--writer." - TLS


"Green's works live with ever-brightening intensity--it's like dancing with Nijinsky or Astaire, who lead you effortlessly on." - The Wall Street Journal


"Green's novels-- have become, with time, photographs of a vanished England--Green's human qualities - his love of work and laughter; his absolute empathy; his sense of splendour amid loss - make him a precious witness to any age." - John Updike


"Green's books are solid and glittering as gems." - Anthony Burgess

From the Inside Flap:

With an Introduction by Paul Bailey

As an early novel, Living marks the beginning of Henry Green's career as a writer who made his name by exploring class distinctions through the medium of love. Set in an iron foundry in Birmingham, the novel grittily and entertainingly contrasts the lives of the workers and the owners.
