Summary
Written with great humour, irony and honesty, The Way of All Flesh exploded perceptions of the Victorian middle-class family in its radical depiction of Ernest Pontifex, a young man who casts off his background and discovers himself. The awkward but likeable son of a tyrannical clergyman and a priggish mother, destined to follow his father into the church, Ernest gleefully rejects his parents' respectability and chooses instead to find his own way in the world
Summary
This brilliant satirical novel is an affirmation of youth's admirable will for freedom of personal expression. It is the fascinating character study of a young man who survives the baleful influence of a hateful, hypocritical father, a doting mother, and a debauched wife to emerge as a decent, happy human being
