THE MONUMENT by Pamela Hansford Johnson


Email this review


World's End received an appreciative press. This is similar, in that it presents a cross section of London through a large cast of characters, their personal problems punctuated by general conditions of unrest, labor strife, anti-Semitism, civil war in Spain. As in the earlier book, the whole is composed of sketches and episodes, rather than a coordination of plot and characterization. This is only in part compensated for by the flair for vitalizing everyday people, and a subtle sense of mood and conflict.
