Economic storm clouds gather as bad political weather is forecast for the nation. Three elderly peers look on from the sidelines of the House of Lords and wonder if it will mean the end of a certain way of life. Against this background is set a court struggle over a disputed will that escalates into an almighty battle.

In Their Wisdom(shortlisted for 1974 Booker Prize). His writing occasionally lacks as a literary stylist. In Their Wisdom is the middle of his late novels with The Malcontents(1972) and A Coat of Varnish(1979). They can be read almost as a trilogy about the interactions between and amongst various segments of the British establishment. For nearly half a century Snow was intimately involved in British academic and political life.

Talk about In Their Wisdom (Strangers Brothers)


Gadar
Because "In Their Wisdom" involves a seemingly never-ending court case, it has been compared to Dickens' "Bleak House." Despite the actual allusions to Dickens throughout, Snow is much closer in spirit and sensibility to another Victorian novelist, Anthony Trollope. Snow wrote a critical biographical study of Trollope and this novel displays much of what he learned from Trollope as a novelist: an avoidance of melodrama and caricature, a wise overview of his characters' behavior and motives, a forgiving stance towards his characters' foibles, a wisdom that comes with age and insight.

This book, despite Amazon's claim, seems not to be part of the Strangers and Brothers sequence. The Booker people had it about right--worthy of short listing but not of the prize.

I give C.P. Snow high marks as an idea novelist, much like John Fowles; after reading one of his books you feel smarter. His writing occasionally lacks as a literary stylist. In Their Wisdom is the middle of his late novels with The Malcontents(1972) and A Coat of Varnish(1979). They can be read almost as a trilogy about the interactions between and amongst various segments of the British establishment. For nearly half a century Snow was intimately involved in British academic and political life. One of his brothers was colonial administrator in Fiji and later received a knighthood.
