`The only novel of mine that I considered...at all to count'. Ford's study of the complex social and sexual relationship between an Edwardian English and American couple is narrated in such a seemingly haphazard way that it has perplexed and delighted readers since its publication in 1915. Despite its catalogue of death, insanity, and despair, this `Tale of Passion' has many comic moments, and has inspired the work of several distinguished writers, including Graham Greene. This is the only annotated student edition available.
