The Way of All Flesh Volume 1

3.27  ·  Rating Details  ·  11 Ratings  ·  1 Review
The Way of All Flesh, a dazzling autobiographical portrayal, is considered one of the best English novels. It is a keen satirical criticism of middle-class English family life. Man's struggle for some measure of self-respect and genuine success in this cruel and unkind world is shown here. It also deals with parent-child relationship with acute sensibility. Gripping!
