Concluding is a novel by British writer Henry Green first published in 1948. It is set entirely on the expansive and idyllic premises of a state-run institution for girls somewhere in rural England and chronicles the events of one summer's day-a Wednesday, and "Founder's Day"-in the lives of the staff, the students, and several other people living on the grounds. During that day, two girls go missing.

Mr Rock rose with a groan. The bedroom smelled stale, packed with books not one of which he had read in years. He groaned a third time. Early morning conies hard on a man my age, he told himself for comfort, comes hard.

Henry Green's novels are all different, each wonderful in their individual ways. His reputation has always been more as a writers' writer than a popular one, with many great writers extolling him. Once hooked in reading him, there's no turning back, but he didn't write that many novels in all -- and stopped writing at a relatively early age. So, one has eventually then to begin re-reading him, with increasing pleasure. In my view the one to start with is "Loving," to get the flavor of his writing. But in my opinion -- and apparently in Green's as well -- his finest is "Concluding" But I would only read that after "Loving," "Party Going" and possibly "Back" before embarking on "Concluding." If you haven't previously read any Henry Green (a nom de plume, by the way) you're possibly in for a wealth of pleasure.

The book was surprisingly hard to put down. It is a glimpse into the hearts and minds of a whole array of characters who live or work at and around a private academy of the future, as the future was imagined in the 1940s.

Henry Green was amazing

This marvelous novel treats one day in the life of 300 girls at a State run girls school, their hapless teachers, the two malevolent bureaucrats who run the place, workers at the institution, granddaughter Elizabeth, the somewhat out of kilter ward of her grandfather, Mr. Rock, a retired but famous scientist, who now lives on the grounds of the school with and for his pets, Ted the goose, Alice the cat, and 400 pound Daisy, a pig par excellance.

It all happens in one end of year day. As the girls prepare for the end of term dance that night, two of their number have disappeared. The two harpie principals continue to scheme through this contretemps to drive Rock from his cottage, while doting granddaughter Liz is fallling in love with a not too stellar lecturer at the school.

As the stories twist and turn we learn a lot about these girls and about life in general. The book is comedic st the end, but has a deep understanding of human nature. You may want to laugh your Agreement out loud to many of the impossible situations, delivered with the driest of wit.

The amazing though utterly commonplace human events of the day are delivered against a backdrop of the finest of studies of two natural processes. The interchanges of thoughts, emotions, dialogue are rendered against beautiful descriptions of sunlight and shadow, brightness and shade, that created in some part by sumptuously described flora—azaleas, rhododendrons, beech and other trees, notably firs. If this is not enough, at the very end of the book (and this is not a spoiler) we encounter flights of starlings, nesting in waves for the night, Ted the goose flying “at speed” through the gathering darkness some six feet off the ground, Alice the cat emerging from the night season and portly Daisy shuffling her way home.

The interplay of floral and faunal movements with the machinations of the administrators, the plotting of the students and the stumbling bumbling progress of Rock, Liz and her man Sebastian is quite a literary feat.

All packed within one day. Green is said to have considered this work of his the most satisfying. I must agree.

Final question for the curious reader: What is Green “concluding” in this late work about a man close to the end of days and his family and familiars? The answer is the work itself.

another brilliant beauty by green, this one more enigmatic and mysterious than NOTHING or DOTING. set in a sort of training school for girls, the story circles around the disappearance of two girls; the cross-purposes between the school's two principals and a mr. rock who lives in a cottage on the school grounds; and also between mr. rock's daughter recovering from a breakdown and her romance with one of the school's instructors. all in the shadow of an impending school dance. what green nails as always is the way people speak and totally misunderstand each other, all the while creating a seamless setting with his lyrical, idiosyncratic prose. you end up feeling like you understand a little more the inexplicable dance of life.
