Eustace and Hilda

Eustace and Hilda

The three books gathered together as EUSTACE AND HILDA explore a brother and sister’s lifelong relationship. Hilda, the older child, is both self-sacrificing and domineering, as puritanical as she is gorgeous; Eustace is a gentle, dreamy, pleasure-loving boy: the two siblings could hardly be more different, but they are also deeply devoted. And yet as Eustace and Hilda grow up and seek to go their separate ways in a world of power and position, money and love, their relationship is marked by increasing pain.

A very beautiful novel, full of delicate people and filigree observation
Nick Hornby
A masterpiece from the very first image ... includes some of the most perfect sentences in English
This masterpiece - for it is no less than that - imposes its convictions without underlining them. One closes the book with a feeling of profound sadness, of regret not only for Eustace and Hilda but for the beautiful literary undertaking that is now ended. Few modern novels impose high standards. This one unquestionably does
Anita Brookner
'The combined effect of these three books is one of mounting excellence. Eustace, the central figure, is an immortal portrayal of the delights and agonies of childhood and adolescence
John Betjeman
Apart from George Eliot's Mill on the Floss, no other novel offers such a devastating illumination of sibling rivalry
