This volume brings together three of Henry Green’s intensely original novels: Loving brilliantly contrasts the lives of servants and masters in an Irish castle during World War II; Living those of workers and owners in a Birmingham iron foundry; Party Going presents a party of wealthy travelers stranded by fog in a London railway hotel while throngs of workers await trains in the station below.
"His novels made more of a stylistic impact upon me than those of any writer living or dead."
      --John Updike

"Green's novels reproduce as few do the actual sensation of living."
      --Elizabeth Bowen
