This is Frank Swinnerton's 1917 novel, "Nocturne". Written in response to a challenge which required him to write a novel that takes place in a single evening, "Nocturne" is set firmly in the world of the working classes and follows the story of Jenny and Emmy, two sisters whose differences threaten to tear them apart. A masterful and intriguing novel not to be missed by fans of Swinnerton's work. Frank Arthur Swinnerton (1884 - 1982) was an English critic, biographer, novelist, and essayist. During his lifetime he wrote more than fifty books, and aided other seminal writers including Aldous Huxley and Lytton Strachey during his time as a publisher's editor. Other notable works by this author include: "Tokefield Papers" (1927), "A London Bookman" (1928), and "Elizabeth" (1934). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
