9780099503743: Mr Weston's Good Wine (Vintage Classics)

"Mr Weston's Good Wine" is the unusual tale of the struggle between the forces of good and evil in a small Dorset village. Its action is limited to one winter's evening when time stands still and the bitter-sweet gift of awareness falls upon a dozen memorable characters. During the book a child knocked down by his car is miraculously brought back to life; the sign 'Mr Weston's Good Wine' lights up the sky; and the villagers soon discover that the wine he sells is no ordinary wine.

About the Author:

T F Powys was a member of a distinguished literary family and the descendant of three generations of country parson. Although born in Derbyshire he spent almost the whole of his life in a remote Dorset village, where all his works were written. He died in 1953.

Review:

"Mr Weston's Good Wine is a book without parallel. It is an allegory, it is a bucolic farce, it is a religious (or anti-religious?) masterpiece" A N Wilson "The greatest value of his work, though, is in showing that it is still possible to write about the primordial human experiences to which religion is a response...Very few 20th-century authors have the knack of writing convincingly of first and last things. A religious writer without any vestige of belief, Theodore Powys is one of them" -- John Gray New Statesman "Grimly brilliant" -- John Carey Sunday Times "[It is] generally considered his masterpiece" Washington Post
