About Book

Book Description
"The Skin Game," Galsworthy's first commercial success and a hit London play, presents class conflict in the enmity of two families - a fierce rivalry between a landowner and his immediate neighbor, complete with nasty tactics, class-based hostility, and dirty secrets that beg to be unearthed. The play was adapted by Alfred Hitchcock and his wife, Alma Reville, and filmed in 1931.

Download Description
HILLCRIST. Well, when I sold Hornblower Longmeadow and the cottages, I certainly found him all right. All the same, he's got the cloven hoof. [Warming up] His influence in Deepwater is thoroughly bad; those potteries of his are demoralising--the whole atmosphere of the place is changing. It was a thousand pities he ever came here and discovered that clay. He's brought in the modern cutthroat spirit.

About the Author
John Galsworthy (1867-1933) devoted virtually his entire professional career to creating a fictional but entirely representative family of propertied Victorians- the Forsytes. He made their lives and times- loves and losses- fortunes and deaths so real that readers accused him of including as characters in his drama real individuals whom they knew. He was the and winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1932.
