"A social satire of epic proportions and one that does not suffer by comparison with Thackeray's
Vanity Fair...the whole comedy of manners, convincing both in its fidelity to life and as a work of art."
--New York Times
The White Monkey is the fourth of the nine novels in The Forsyte Chronicles and marks the opening of
the second trilogy in the series, called A Modern Comedy. In this new chapter, Fleur and Michael Mont begin
to question their marriage when their good friend, author Wilfred Desert, can no longer contain his passion for
Fleur. Fleur finds herself torn between her love for Michael and passion for Wilfred.
Meanwhile, Soames Forsyte, as a director of the Providential Premium Reassurance Society, must root out the
rumored indiscretions of a manager's dubious dealings with the Germans. The whole while, he is haunted by a
painting of a white monkey with rinds of crushed fruit flung about it and eyes searching for something more.
