Oscar and Lucinda

Oscar and Lucinda is a satire about two star-crossed lovers that takes place in the mid-nineteenth century. Oscar Hopkins is a contradictory man, both pious and corrupt. He was raised by a strict, religious father, but he abandons his father's religion in favor of Anglicanism. He spends the rest of his life wondering if his decision has damned his soul to hell, as his father believes. Oscar further endangers his soul when he takes up gambling while in divinity school. Oscar justifies his vice by philosophizing that believing in God is a gamble anyway. How could God condemn a man for having a bit of fun at the racetrack?

It was shortlisted for The Best of the Booker. It tells the story of Oscar Hopkins, the Devonian son of a Plymouth Brethren minister who becomes an Anglican priest , and Lucinda Leplastrier, a young Australian heiress who buys a glass factory. They meet on the ship over to Australia, and discover that they are both gamblers , one obsessive, the other compulsive. This bet changes both their lives forever. The novel partly takes its inspiration from Father and Son , the autobiography of the English poet Edmund Gosse , which describes his relationship with his father, Philip Henry Gosse. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
