A god and his gifts : a novel by I Compton-Burnett( Book )

An interesting novel about the inhabitants of a large Victorian household [in the Edwardian period, roughly 1901 to 1910]. It features a pair of over-bearing parents who are dominiating this mysterious home's occupants. The conversations revolve around the makings of successful marriages. It is significant that the white males of the story are always attempting to boss the women around, as if they had no choices to make in any matters at all... The chief character of the novel is Hereward Egerton [the "god" of the title], a self-absorbed sociopath who adheres to no rules but his own. --A Customer at Amazon.com and outmodedauthors.blogspot.com

"A House and Its Head is Ivy Compton-Burnett's subversive look at the politics of family life, and perhaps the most unsparing of her novels. No sooner has Duncan Edgeworth's wife died than he takes a new, much younger bride whose willful ways provoke a series of transgressions that begins with adultery and ends, much to everyone's relief, in murder."--Publisher's description
