Paradise Postponed, Paperback

Paradise Postponed Paperback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series



When Simeon Simcox, a socialist clergyman, leaves his entire fortune not to his family but to the ruthless, social-climbing Tory MP Leslie Titmuss, the Rector's two sons react in very different ways.

Henry, novelist and former 'angry young man' turned grumpy old reactionary, decides to fight the will and prove their father was insane.

Younger brother Fred, a mild-mannered country doctor, takes a different approach, quietly digging in Simeon's past, only to uncover an entirely unexpected explanation for the legacy.

An exquisitely drawn saga of ancient rivalries and class struggles, featuring a glorious cast of characters, "Paradise Postponed" is a delicious portrait of English country life by a master satirist.
