No remainder markings. " Nigel Dennis has.a place as one of the best English novelists of his generation." - Bernard Bergonzi. " Dennis, Nigel (Forbes) (1912-89), British novelist and dramatist, born in Bletchingley, Surrey, educated in Rhodesia, Austria, and Germany. He was an outstanding journalist and became co-editor of 'Encounter'. Much of his first novel, 'Boys and Girls Come out To Play' (1949), is set in America where he had worked as a journalist from 1931 to 1949. 'Cards of Identity' (1955), which Dennis adapted for the stage in 1956, is widely regarded as his finest work; an extravagantly inventive satire on the shallowness of human identity in modern civilization, the novel culminates, in The Prince of Antioch', a sustained parody of Shakespeare. 'A House in Order' (1960), set chiefly in a greenhouse from which the narrator observes a third world war, forms a tautly concentrated fable on the nature of human purpose. His other works as a dramatist include 'The Making of Moo' (1957) and 'August for the People' (1961). His love of the Mediterranean is expressed in 'An Essay on Malta' (1972) and in 'Exotics' (1970), a volume of poems set mainly in that region." - Oxford Companion to 20th Cent. Lit. in English. " Although Nigel Dennis has published only three novels, their quality is high enough to give him a place as one of the best English novelists of his generation. 'Cards of Identity'.established his reputation and remains one of the most brilliant works of post-war English fiction.'A House in Order' is remarkable for the way in which it works as a novel, even while being an evident moral fable." - Bernard Bergonzi. 'Nigel Dennis, novelist and playwright, now appears as poet of style and wit in this first collection of his poetry, 'Exotics'. True to their title, these vigorous, energetic poems range in theme and subject from the 'Epic of Gilgamesh' and other Sumerian legends to Mediterranean life today, and include a selection of brilliant translations from the nineteenth-century Italian poet, Guiseppe Giusti.
