Eva Trout by Elizabeth Bowen
Eva Trout Elizabeth Bowen Author I geb. 1899 (Ireland) t 1973 First edition l 1968 Publisher I A. Knopf (New York) Oorspr. language I English Eva Trout is Bowen’s last and in some ways most difficult masterpiece. Like her earlier work, this novel has the brilliant humour and disturbing perspicacity of her descriptions of people and places, feelings and ideas, love and loss, but it goes to strange new depths. In a sense, it has the social ambience and language of bygone decades, but it is also one of the most remarkable and strangely representative works of the 1960s.
