About the book:

Mervyn Peake (1911-1968) was a prolific and astonishingly original writer and artist, who touched at one time or another on almost every literary form. Peakešs Progress is a selection, compiled by his widow, Maeve Gilmore, from every period of his work as a writer and draughtsman. It contains a remarkable work from childhood. ?The White Chief of the ?Umzimbooboo Kaffirs,š the early ?Mr. Slaughterboard,š which foreshadows the Titus books, two plays, ?the Wit to Wooš and ?Noahšs Ark,š a broadcast version of ?Mr. Pye,š and a generous selection of Peakešs short stories, poems and nonsense verses as well as his drawings. Including a new preface written by Mervyn Peakešs son, Sebastian, this edition of Peakešs Progress is published to coincide with the centenary of Peakešs birth.
