Notes for a Young Gentleman

by Toby Litt

Notes for a Young Gentleman Synopsis

Toby Litt is one of that rare breed of fiction writers who never writes the same book twice: every time out, he takes an unexpected new tack and his readers happily follow. Told in the form of the pithy, even lyrical advice a young soldier leaves behind after a mission gone wrong, Notes for a Young Gentleman is no exception. Its brilliantly creative form, and the epigrammatic genius Litt displays in its creation, nonetheless can't hide the powerful, emotional story at its heart: of a young soldier parachuting toward a beautiful, moonlit country house on a mission ...of betrayal. The house? Marlborough. The target? Winston Churchill, an old friend of his father. A brilliant, at times dizzying but always heartfelt exploration of love, revenge, and the essence of a gentleman, Notes for a Young Gentleman is classic Toby Litt: wholly new and wholly unforgettable.

Notes for a Young Gentleman Press Reviews

One of the most inventive and original writers around. -- Daily Mirror Toby Litt is awfully good--he gives something new every time he writes. -- Muriel Spark Notes for a Young Gentleman is also sui generis, a mesmerizingly elusive set of glimpses. -- Times Literary Supplement
