Book Description

Spanning fifty years and three continents - from pre-war Suffolk, to the Far East in the 1940s, to Oxford and America in the present day - Forgotten Life is a novel of immense scope, encompassing comedy and tragedy, joy and grief, as its three main characters try to work out the most difficult problem of all - the meaning of their own lives. Brian says: 'This novel, which in retrospect can be seen to have a similar ground plan to Non-Stop, written thirty years earlier, was more warmly received than any other Aldiss novel, not simply by its reviewers but by readers.' Features a new introduction by the author.
