Ford Madox Ford's shocking insight into the lives of two rich and idle couples whose vacuous existences are filled to bursting point with selfishness, jealousy and lust is a milestone in twentieth-century literature. Brilliantly cast and featuring the most deviously unreliable narrator since Iago, The Good Soldier tells a roller-coaster tragic-comic tale of characters who are by no means what they seem, and get exactly what they deserve. And as the author observes with chilling truthfulness, such people can wreak terrible damage on the innocent along the way.
