"Concluding tells the story of the strange events that occur in a single day at a State-run school for girls." "Retired scientist Mr. Rock, "an old man in love with his goose," lives in a cottage with his adult granddaughter Elizabeth. Bordering the grounds of the school, the cottage - which the State has given Rock for the duration of his life in gratitude for his scientific contributions - is coveted by the school's two spinsterish governesses, Misses Edge and Baker." "As the story opens, two students are missing. The resultant search for their whereabouts raises numerous fears and questions: have they been harmed? have they left on their own, alone? or have they perhaps been persuaded by the school's only male instructor, Sebastian Birt? how will the governesses keep the news from parents and State authorities until the girls have been found and an "acceptable" story contrived? will Rock report them for negligence? Meanwhile, as rumors and versions of the girls' disappearance spread through the school, and the governesses attempt to conceal their alarm by preparing for the school's tenth annual Founders Day Ball, the seemingly innocent proceedings take on an air of mystery, intrigue, and impending doom."--Jacket

Back by Henry Green( Book )

57 editions published between 1946 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Back is the story of Charlie Summer, who is back from the war and a POW camp having lost the woman he loved, Rose, to illness before he left and his leg to fighting. In other words, Charlie has very little to come back to, only memories, and on top of that he has been deeply traumatized by his experience of war. Rose's father introduces him to another young woman, Nancy, and Charlie becomes convinced that she is in fact Rose and pursues her. Back is at once a Shakespearean comedy of mistaken identities, a voyage into the world of madness, and a celebration of the improbable healing powers of love"--

Caught; a novel by Henry Green( Book )

62 editions published between 1943 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,015 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the Blitz, Henry Green served on the London Fire Brigade, and this experience lies behind Caught, published in 1942, when the bombing had only recently ended. Like Green, Richard Roe, the hero of this resolutely unheroic book, comes from the upper class. His wife remains at their country estate, far from the threatened city, while Roe serves under Pye, a professional fireman whose deranged sister once kidnapped Roe's young son, a bad memory that complicates the relationship between these two very different men. The book opens as the various members of the Fire Brigade are having practice runs and fighting boredom and falling into bed with each other in the months before the attack from the air. It ends with Roe, who has been injured in the bombing, back in the country, describing and trying to come to terms with the apocalyptic conflagration, in which he and his fellows were caught, putting into question the very notion of ordinary life. Caught was censored at the insistence of its publisher, Leonard Woolf, when it first came out. This is the first American edition of the book to appear as Green intended"--

Nothing ; Doting ; Blindness by Henry Green( Book )

17 editions published between 1979 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three brilliant novels which span Henry Green's career as a novelist and display his unique talents as a writer. Nothing is a tale of the merry-go-round of love, marriage and infidelity, and the ceaseless intergenerational tussle of innocence versus experience. Doting sets the middle-aged male infatuation for pretty girls against the comfortable affection of wives/old friends, delving into the complications of burgeoning affairs and boring marriages. In Blindness, Green's first novel, a young man is blinded in a senseless accident but thereafter discovers new imaginative powers

Caught, back, concluding by Henry Green( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dazzling, daring and full of original insight and wit, Henry Green offers a unique view of a class-ridden Britain enduring both war and its aftermath. In the apocalyptic atmosphere of the Blitz, so brilliantly evoked in Caught, gossip spreads like wildfire and the lives of two men are torn apart. In Back, Charley, an amputee, returns from a prison camp to his village and the grave of the woman he loved. Concluding was Green's own favourite of his novels and tells the story of a summer's day and a schoolgirl's disappearance. The text of Caught used in this edition is based on Green's original manuscript, which was censored by the publisher on first publication, but can be read now for the first time in unexpurgated form
