Book Details:This is the first American edition of C.P. Snow’s eight novel in the critically acclaimed “Brothers & Strangers” series published by Charles Scribner’s Sons, New York, in 1960. “C. P. Snow's new novel is one in which Mr. Snow's special talents have their best application. It is a scrupulous, equable, stimulating, passionless examination of human conduct- and C.P. Snow's considered almost flat prose is often deceptive so subtle are many of the intentions and revelations which ensue. His audience by now is most secure.” – Kirkus Review
