Every generation finds in The Way of All Flesh a reaffirmation of youth's rightful struggle against the tyranny of harsh parents and its admirable will for freedom of personal expression. This is a fascinating character study of a young man who survives the influence of a hateful, hypocritical father, a doting mother, and a debauched wife to emerge as a decent, happy human being. It is also a stinging satire of Victorian gentry and of the same traits that exist in our time.

Samuel Butler's novel about the happy, united Victorian home, and how to survive it. Its themes are superficially dated, but conflict between parents and children will always be current until, as Butler hoped, we should all be born, wrapped in money, out of eggs, our parents having died a short time before. The experienced and trenchant David Case provides his usual excellent narration.
