Inhaltsangabe: One-legged Charley Summers is finally home from the war - only to find he must now deal with the death of his lover, Rose. A shell-schocked romantic, Charley begins to have trouble telling Rose's half-sister Nancy apart from the late Rose. Charley's delusions elevate his timid courtship of a practical and unremarkable young woman into an amnesiac love story, both comic and disturbing. A contemporary of Anthony Powell and Evelyn Waugh, Henry Green was one of the greatest English novelists of the 20th century. Back is his most personal and haunting work.

Rezension: "The skillful coupling of love talk and office terminology, the dexterous handling of characters who seem at first glance to be picked bone clean but who turn into cream, and the view of a world just a little off center make "Back" a delightful, wispy and original experience." "Kirkus"
"Writing that shines with wit and good humor." "Time""

"Farcical mystery and a heavy dose of pragmatism enliven and ground British writer Green's 1946 off-kilter romance In this quick and engrossing novel, Green reveals that living and loving are more about embracing failures and making frequent recalibrations than striving toward unattainable ideals.

Henry Green is nearer than almost any other to the spirit and what one might call the central nerve of our time. Elizabeth Bowen
Green questions what it could mean to come back from a war that hasn t ended in reality or memory. In this quick and engrossing novel, Green reveals that living and loving are more about embracing failures and making frequent recalibrations than striving toward unattainable ideals.
Kirkus Reviews, starred review
To describe his scenes as having the visual clarity of the best movie shots does not convey their peculiar quality of hallucination. To say that his plots are hinged on certain fatal situations from myth and fable does not carry over Green s feeling for our particular fate in modern life, or the compulsive fears and anxieties of his characters for their modern fate, especially for organizations represented by initials. Mark Schorer, The New York Times Book Review
Backis Henry Green s most extended attempt to plumb the world of the hunted and haunted. Jeremy Treglown
