Description
Paperback reprint in the 'Penguin Twentieth-Century Classics' series of a novel first published in 1973. Focuses on the last days of an aged, wealthy socialite. Her quest for the transcendent is revealed and the complex relationships of her family and associates explored. 'One seeks among debased superlatives for words that would convey the grandeur of 'The Eye of the Storm' not in destitute slogans but in tribute to its high intellect, its fidelity to our victories and confusions, its beauty and heroic maturity ... every passage merits attention and gives satisfactionS (Shirley Hazzard, 'The New York Times Book Review'). White was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1973.
