On Green Dolphin Street. After a period in France, he and his family now live in London. Also by Sebastian Faulks. The Girl at the Lion d’Or.

On Green Dolphin Street book.

On Green Dolphin Street is a good book but fell short of Faulk's greatness for this reader. The ambiance is there, the heartbreak, and the heady politics of the early 1960s is told in realistic detail, but there was something predictable about the book, and I don't mean about Kennedy winning. It's all a very heartwrenching story, and a good one, but to me, Sebastian just didn't live up to his unique talents. The story he was telling was complex and very interesting from an historical perspective and the descriptions of New York in that time period had me mesmorized!

On Green Dolphin Street is a novel by Sebastian Faulks, published by Hutchinson in 2001. The title comes from a 1947 composition by Bronislau Kaper and Ned Washington-written for the Hollywood film Green Dolphin Street-and later recorded by jazz musicians Miles Davis (1958), and Bill Evans (1959), among others. The film was an adaptation of the best-seller novel Green Dolphin Street (1944) by Elizabeth Goudge.

Focusing on a richly significant time in our recent past, Sebastian Faulks, the bestselling author of Birdsong and Charlotte Gray, has written his first novel set in America. The year is 1960—a fascinating moment of transition in our country, when the comfortable Eisenhower years were drawing to a close and the ruthlessly competitive Nixon/Kennedy presidential campaign signaled the beginning of a starkly different decade. Mary van der Linden has recently moved from London to Washington, D.C., with her two children and her loving, admired husband, Charlie, who is posted to the British Embassy. Nearly forty, Mary has spent a lifetime as a loyal daughter, wife and mother. But in this year of so much change, she feels compelled to break away from her familiar world and is drawn to the freedom of New York City, which is effervescent with parties, jazz, three- martini lunches, girls in their summer dresses and men in their Sinatra hats and big ties. Greenwich Village is still charmingly bohemian, and Miles Davis’s hit tune “On Green Dolphin Street” is playing everywhere. Mary finds a hotel room in New York and then finds a lover, while back in Washington her husband drinks to forget the demands of his job, the absence of his wife and the Cold War paranoia that has overtaken the capital. Faulks breaks new ground with this novel: It is a love story, not a war story, and it is set in America rather than France. Yet readers of his two previous bestselling novels will recognize the close focus of the historical setting, the unforgettable characters and the gathering emotional power of the narrative. On Green Dolphin Street is a dramatic, tremendously moving novel that is certain to extend the American audience for this prodigiously talented author’s work.

Not only was this well written and a moving believable story, but the fact that the kindle edition was not rife with editing mistakes has restored my faith. I'm not sure why some kindle books are so awful. I am grateful Faulk's writing is represented as it should be on this kindle edition.

What a shocker. This book had to be the most boring book I have read in years. There are so many issues Faulks could have pursued yet he left every one of the hanging. What about alcoholism, diplomacy, politics, adultery, etc. This is certainly not up to par with past endeavor. It is nothing more than a trite love story.

I have read Faulks triology and like this book since it was set in the 1950s when I was little.

Still to early into the book for me to answer these questions.

A good read but I found it a little draggy in parts

I love the way Faulks writes but my favorite will always be Birdsong. Can't wait to start a new one .

very poor book, am puzzled why he wrote it
I love Sebastian Faulks and Birdsong is on my top ten list. On Green Dolphin Street is a good book but fell short of Faulk's greatness for this reader. The ambiance is there, the heartbreak, and the heady politics of the early 1960s is told in realistic detail, but there was something predictable about the book, and I don't mean about Kennedy winning. It's all a very heartwrenching story, and a good one, but to me, Sebastian just didn't live up to his unique talents. The story he was telling was complex and very interesting from an historical perspective and the descriptions of New York in that time period had me mesmorized! I loved the long walks around NYC and the stopping in at this shop or that bar that take place in this book, they do showcase Faulks extreme talents. The issue I had was just with the story itself and the working in of romance, mystery and the heartache. Parts of it were not that intriquing to me, though nicely written, naturally. It was not the writing that troubled me but, at times, the story itself.

I did enjoy this book and read the first half quickly-thinking - Oh, boy, is this going to be good, but as a let down, the second half seemed to drag on a bit, so that I was rather happy to be reading the last pages when I got to them. I will read more from Faulks, and I recommend this book to those who enjoy recent political history (to a certain degree) and the atmosphere of the late 50s, early 60s, when the world had been digging itself out of one war and was headed toward another very different war in an unfamiliar part of the world where even the technique of war varied from past experiences.

This is a good biopic of the time period and of the inner workings of a British diplomatic family living in Washington, D.C. There is a great journalistic viewpoint provided by the character, Frank Renzo who is also a WWII veteran. Frank was my favorite character in the story because he displayed some backbone and made the story more realistic for me. With television in its youth, the retelling of certain events shown through the aspect of viewing it on TV in the new era of television was also an interesting aspect of this book especially when it came to the debate between Kennedy and Nixon in Sept. 1960. The election was the closest presidential election since the 1800s and remains one of the tightest races in US history.

If Birdsong left you feeling patriotic and believing in something larger than yourself, this book will not leave you the same-which may just expertly portray the ambivalence and uncertainty of the time in which it takes place.
