Product Description

Review

'A gloriously funny, bumpy ride through modern times'―EVENING STANDARD

'Very entertaining - think a more self-aware and sophisticated Jilly Cooper... the result is that rare thing - an intelligent and insightful blockbuster'―GLOSS MAGAZINE

'The story takes us back to the Season of 1968 and its lavish balls andparties, to the debutantes, to the eligible men who accompanied them...Poignant, funny, fascinating and moving, this clever and touching novelis surely the must-read book of the year'―SUNDAY EXPRESS

'Its plot cannot fail to grip the reader'―SPECTATOR

'Fellowes populates PAST IMPERFECT with a gallery of sometimes grotesque but mostly affectionately drawn toffs - acidly observed bythe narrator, ever peevish, ever diverting'―DAILY EXPRESS

Julian's book is for someone who enjoys a witty, intelligent, humorous story written in both the seventies and the twenties. The main character is in his late fifties and tells the story of his youth, during the time when aristocratic families and their traditions still existed. Its is very well written and engaging although this type of book may not interest everyone. Still, a great, interesting read.

What a gem! I didn't want this novel to end. Fellowes is a brilliant writer with a wicked sense of humour. His novel Snobs is just as clever.

Past Imperfect is one of those novels that keeps you constantly amused, the only side-track is to laugh out loud. Beautifully written by and author with a wicked sense of humour, I highly recommend it.

Julian Fellows writes interesting stories of the upper class in England and their problems in life in making it in the upper class society. This is about an era that has nearly passed in Britain.

I hope the author writes many more books. His book Snobs is an excellent read. Both books are page turners, hard to put down.
