Description
(Finalist for the inaugural Folio Prize) Old Filth gave us the captivating character of Sir Edward "Old Filth" Feathers; The Man in the Wooden Hat was his wife Betty's story, from her very different perspective. Last Friends, the final, bittersweet chapter in Jane Gardam's trilogy, is the story of lawyer Terence Veneering, Eddie's one real nemesis in court and his rival for the love of Betty. The son of a Russian acrobat who was marooned in the English midlands, Terence grew up enduring the xenophobic attitudes of the English gentry. He is only able to make his fortune in the Far East, where he finds himself continually at odds with Old Filth. As they and their circle face the disappointments and consolations of old age, they find that they are all, finally, each other's last friend. The popular and prolific Gardam remains one of Britain's best-kept literary secrets; she has twice won the Whitbread Award, among numerous other awards and nominations for her more than 30 books, yet remains all but unknown in the United States. Her trilogy of novels about retired barrister Edward "Old Filth" Feathers, his wife Betty, and his rival Terence Veneering may well be the best place to begin your appreciation of Gardam.

"The satisfying conclusion to Gardam's Old Filth trilogy offers exquisite prose, wry humor, and keen insights into aging and death."The New Yorker
