About this product
- DescriptionNatalie Natalia is Nicholas Mosley's brilliant examination of political life. It revolves around Anthony Greville, a conservative Member of Parliament who is tormented by his ambivalence toward his career, by his religious doubts, and by his adulterous affair with Natalia Jones, the enigmatic wife of a colleague. The course of their affair dramatizes love in its most creative and perilously destructive aspects, the two facets symbolized in the two names he has for his lover: I sometimes called Natalia Natalie instead of Natalia, Greville says, when she was the raveus rather than the angelic angel...What Natalie said was often a code for what Natalia was meaning. Ranging in setting from England to Central Africa, the vel is a remarkable investigation of ethics, with fiction itself as an ethical activity.
