A Vicious Circle (1996) is a novel by Amanda Craig which dissects and satirizes contemporary British society. In particular, it describes the world of publishing -- its aspiring young authors, busy agents and opportunist literary critics. However, A Vicious Circle is also about falling in and out of love, marriage, bringing up children, class consciousness, poverty, and the sad state of hospitals and the medical profession in Britain.
Famous quotes containing the word vicious:
“You have to have something vicious in you to be a creative writer ... something old-adamish, incompatible to the ordinary world.”
—D.H. (David Herbert)
