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.Often incorrectly called THE FORSYTE SAGA, the nine novel sequence properly known as THE FORSYTE CHRONICLES contains three trilogies, of which the first trilogy is THE FORSYTE SAGA (THE MAN OF PROPERTY, IN CHANCERY, TO LET). The second trilogy, A MODERN COMEDY (THE WHITE MONKEY, THE SILVER SPOON, SWAN SONG) is followed by the third and concluding trilogy, END OF THE CHAPTER (MAID IN WAITING, FLOWERING WILDERNESS, ONE MORE RIVER). THE FORSYTE CHRONICLES has become established as one of the most popular and enduring works of twentieth century literature, described by the New York Times as: A social satire of epic proportions and one that does not suffer by comparison with Thackerays VANITY FAIR...the whole comedy of manners, convincing both in its fidelity to life and as a work of art.
