Ford Madox Ford’s World War I masterpiece Parade’s End is now available on audio for the first time ever!

Ford Madox Ford’s tetralogy set in England during World War I is widely considered one of the best novels of the twentieth century.
     First published as four separate novels (Some Do Not..., No More Parades, A Man Could Stand Up, and The Last Post) between 1924 and 1928, Parade’s End explores the world of the English ruling class as it descends into the chaos of war.
     Christopher Tietjens is an officer from a wealthy family who finds himself torn between his unfaithful socialite wife, Sylvia, and his suffragette mistress, Valentine. A profound portrait of one man’s internal struggles during a time of brutal world conflict, Parade’s End bears out Graham Greene’s prediction that “there is no novelist of this century more likely to live than Ford Madox Ford.”

From the Inside Flap:

This monumental novel, divided into four separate books, celebrates the end of an era, the irrevocable destruction of the comfortable, predictable society that vanished during World War I.

About the Author:

Ford Madox Ford was born Ford Hermann Hueffer in England in 1873. In 1919 He changed his name to Ford Madox Ford in honor of his grandfather, the pre-Raphaelite painter, Ford Madox Brown, whose biography he had written. Ford was well known for both his fiction and his criticism. He founded two influential journals, The English Review in 1908 and The Transatlantic Review in 1924, in which he championed many of the leading modernist writers of the day. His most famous novels include the tetralogy Parade’s End and The Good Soldier, which are still ranked among the greatest works of the twentieth century. Ford died in 1939, at age sixty-five, in France.
