Book Description Condition: New. Hamilton's world, peopled with sad, brooding characters trailing on the edge of society, leading bleak, loveless lives, is exemplified in this satirical picture of a small group of Reading residents. In Ernest Ralph Gorse, Hamilton creates one of fiction?s most captivating anti-heroes, whose heartlessness and lack of scruple are matched only by the inventiveness and panache with which he swindles his victims. With great deftness and precision Hamilton exposes how Gorse?s dupes? own na?vet?, snobbery or greed make them perfect targets. These three novels are shot through with the brooding menace and sense of bleak inevitability so characteristic of the author. There is also vivid satire and caustic humour. A marvellous novelist who is grossly neglected. DORIS LESSING. Seller Inventory # 3036
