The Man of Property
John Galsworthy's novel was published in 1906 and in my novel Christian Drewe is reading it when he returns from Austria.
I wanted to pay a tribute to John Galsworthy's wonderful book. I often have a copy of 'The Forsyte Saga' by my desk when I write. At times when I am looking for inspiration I will open the book and read random passages. Galsworthy is a master of characterisation and scene setting. None of his characters are one dimensional; even Soames turns into a devoted and loving father. I similarly did not want to make any of the characters in Of All Faiths & None one dimensional and made sure that each of them had flaws in their characters.
