Strangers and Brothers is a series of novels by C. P. Snow, published between 1940 and 1970. They deal with, among other things, questions of political and personal integrity, and the mechanics of exercising power. All eleven novels in the series are narrated by the character Lewis Eliot. The series follows his life and career from humble beginnings in an English provincial town, to reasonably successful London lawyer, to Cambridge don, to wartime service in Whitehall, to senior civil servant and finally retirement. This final volume of C.P. Snow's novel dequence opens with Lewis Eliot tracing the career of a young Tory M.P. fighting a lonely ban-the-bomb campaign in the Cabinet. From the corridors of power, the world of press lobbies, country-house parties and driving ambition, Eliot turns back to has boyhood home, takes up an old friendship, becomes involved in a devasting murder trial, and then takes time off to reevaluate as, in Last Things, Snow brings the sequence to a triumphant conclusion. Snow's fiction similarly contains his characters in the smallest possible area of operation, with no appeal to outside. A modern classic series.
