Classic fiction

The first novel of a family saga, Clayhanger (1910) is a coming-of-age story set in the Midlands of Victorian England.  It follows Edwin Clayhanger as he leaves school, takes over the family business and falls in love. The triumph of the book is the minute detailing of the effect of bourgeois respectability on Edwin's life and finally his submission to it.
