Описание: Sweeping us into the inner sanctum of Boston society, into the Beacon Hill town houses and exclusive private clubs where only the city's wealthiest and most
powerful congregate, this novel gives us - through the story of one family and its patriarch, the recently deceased George Apley - the portrait of an entire society in transition. Gently
satirical and rich with drama, the novel moves from the Guided Age to the Great Depression as it projects George Apley's world - and subtly reveals a life in which success and
accomplishment mask disappointment and regret, a life of extreme and enviable privilege that is nonetheless an imperfect life. The Late George Apley was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for
fiction in 1938.
