Review

"One of the funniest, most penetrating novels since the early Aldous Huxley." -- Time

About the Author

Nigel Dennis is the author of three novels, including A Sea Change and A House in Order, three plays, and several books of essays. Although born in Surrey, Dennis spent much of his early adulthood in the U.S. reviewing books for the New Republic and Time. He also translated works of the Austrian psychologist Alfred Adler, which provided him with material for Cards Of Identity.

Format: Paperback
Actually Cards of Indentity is four books and a play. The "plot" involves a group of "psychologists" who take over a country home by mental tricks in order to hold a convention. Three of the books are 'papers' delivered at the convention. The play (which you will swear was written by Shakespeare) is the entertainment at the end of the convention. A must read.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and am constantly putting my sanity at risk by first recommending my friends read it, then having to
lend it to them because it is so hard to find!!

Its message is roughly that we shouldn't allow ourselves to be forced to behave in a particular way just because someone claims they are an expert in who/what `people' are.

It is an incredible feeling to come across a novel that has no fame or recognition yet is as genius as the great classics. Cards of Identity- is such a novel. It's brilliant satire makes it absence all the more unfortunate.

Format: Paperback
I don't know how I originally came across Card of Identity about 15 years ago, but I couldn't put it down and have read it three times. It's an enchanting novel and I'd hate for anyone to pass it by based on the rather incomprehensible reviews I've read of it on this site.
