Description

George Orwell as an imperialist patriot, Virginia Woolf making fun of feminism and T.S.Eliot as the author of an adventure story set in the South Seas are among the prize items to be found in this collection of 20th-century juvenilia. The age limit has been set at 16. The author has been collecting material for this book for the past 30 years, encouraging friends like Francis King, David Gascoyne and Elizabeth Jennings to search through their old papers. Other items he tracked down in school magazines - such as John Betjeman's attempt to find words to rhyme with "summer", which first appeared in the Dragon School magazine in 1918, when he was only 13. The collection should appeal to those interested in 20th-century literature, poetry and writers, as well as collectors of anthologies and miscellanies.show more
