    Of Love and Hunger ePUB ¾ Of Love PDF/EPUB or × ePUB akvarieprofilen.co love book, hunger kindle, Of Love pdf, Of Love and Hunger PDF/EPUBAn interesting novel set in 1939 in the months before the start of war It opens a window of an England now mostly disappeared; landladies jobs easy to get and lots of smoking However the themes of love and loss are eternal The shadow of war is ever present The main character isn't likeable but the descriptions of daily life are fascinating The wiki entry is a one liner and absolutley hilarious; Richard Fanshawe sells vacuum cleaners for a living and has an unhappy love affair with Sukie the wife of his friend How to really sell a novel The descriptions of the selling tecniues and the fake camaraderie the hollowness at its centre reminded me of the organised telephone selling we have today Bitingly satirical and bitter Maclaren Ross dissects the whole set upI picked this up again last night and found it worth a re read Maclaren Ross was a fascinating character a real bohemian and denizen of Soho and Fitzrovia in the mid century Constantly in debt and avoiding landl

    Of Love and Hunger ePUB ¾ Of Love PDF/EPUB or × ePUB akvarieprofilen.co love book, hunger kindle, Of Love pdf, Of Love and Hunger PDF/EPUBSet in pre war South England a door to door vacuum cleaner salesman called Fanshawe is asked by his mate to look after his wife Sukie while he’s away at sea The naiveté of some folk eh? Fanshawe and Sukie end up having an affair but with the ever encroaching spectre of war and the uptight morals of 1930s British society what will become of their love? On paper Of Love and Hunger sounds like a mundane romance novel but Julian Maclaren Ross’s witty and uniue storytelling crystal clear social realism cracking dialogue and sharp characterisation turns it into something special Though it was published in 1947 it still reads very well today the only problem I had was with the currency which was all bob this and guinea that; no clue how much we we

    Of Love and Hunger ePUB ¾ Of Love PDF/EPUB or × ePUB akvarieprofilen.co love book, hunger kindle, Of Love pdf, Of Love and Hunger PDF/EPUBThe story in front about vacuum salesmen and failed love is a bit lean but the larger background themes remain frighteningly fresh and relevant Not exactly a compelling read but I liked it overall Label resistant and genre bending Try to imagine Patrick Hamilton between the wars English boardinghouse and pub settings; love obsessed socially marginalized narrator; political themes with a socialist leaning viewpoint mixed with James M Cain jaded tough guy protagonist; clipped vernacular laden hardboiled prose and J D Salinger lots of swearing; “lone wolf” narrator; direct confessional narration Similar to all three of these authors in some aspects but taken as a whole not like any of them at all “The tea room was full of women sort that lived on big estates behind the town in suare white villas with long windows and hardwood floors and steel and glass furniture you know the type Belong to bridge clubs and country cubs and golf and tennis clubs sit around talking scandal all
