Parade's End

Parade's End

  • customer reviews
In the blockbuster tradition of Downtown Abbey, the tie-in to the television event of the season: Ford Madox Ford’s World War I classic finally comes to audio to coincide with the HBO/BBC five-part miniseries, unabridged on both CD and MP3 CD with HBO tie- art.

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.”
