Widely acclaimed when first published in the 1920s, Ford Madox Ford's sequence of four novels, known collectively as Parade's End, is one of the outstanding works about the Great War and British society before, during, and after that cataclysm. A major work of Modernism, it is an investigation of time, history, and sexuality. This novel, the fourth and final volume, is set on a single summer's day and follows the characters into the unsettling and often disorientating postwar world. With fluency, humor and great skill, this narrative explores their individual memories, hopes, and uncertainties, while also subtly questioning the current and future state of England.
