The Golden Child

(1977)
A novel by

 
Beautiful re-issue of this wonderful Fitzgerald backlist title - her first novel The Golden Child, Penelope Fitzgerald's first work of fiction, is a classically plotted British mystery centred around the arrival of the 'Golden Child' at a London museum. Whilst the new exhibit lures thousands of curious spectators, it also becomes the sinister focus in a web of intrigue and murder. The Golden Child shows how Fitzgerald's distinctive wit and humour and her sense of the absurd were present at the very beginning of her career. It shows, as always, how acutely perceptive of human nature she is, how understanding and how forgiving. It is also, perhaps more than any other of her books, a minor comic masterpiece.
