A House and its HeadIvy Compton-Burnett
Unfolding almost entirely in dialogue of vicious wit and layered implications, A House and its Head is a brutally funny demolition of Victorian patriarchal authority and the hypocrisy of English society. Republished after decades out of print, it confirms Ivy Compton-Burnett's status as the twentieth century's greatest chronicler of the violent dysfunction of families.
