One of a series of books by the English novelist and playwright who won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1932. Contains the five tales: The First and Last, A Stoic, The Apple Tree, The Juryman and Indian Summer of a Forsyte.
In the last day of May in the early 'nineties, about six o'clock of the evening, old Jolyon Forsyte sat under the oak tree below the terrace of his house at Robin Hill. He was waiting for the midges to bite him, before abandoning the glory of the afternoon. His thin brown hand, where blue veins stood out, held the end of a cigar in its tapering, long-nailed fingers.
