One of Mopperhond's 900 English pocket books.

From the back:
John Galsworthy's nine Forsyte novels span fifty years of family decline, from the 1880's to the 1930s. In seeking to insulate themselves by property from reality and the disintegration of their class, the Forsytes are gradually blinded to the threats of social change and 'the stealthy march of passion'. Galsworthy tackles his huge theme - the death of the upper-middle classes - with a unique blend of irony and understanding.

The most prized item in Soames Forsythe's collection of beautiful things is his wife, the enigmatic Irene. But when she falls in love with Bosinney, a penniless architect who utterly rejects the Forsyte values, their affair touches off a series of events which can only end in disgrace and disaster...

gynaecologists' waiting area.
The OBCZ restaurant disappeared and I have not been able to establish a permanent new OBCZ. So now this book gets to travel on its own.
