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. Peake¹s 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,¹ the early ?Mr. Slaughterboard,¹ which foreshadows the Titus books, two plays, ?the Wit to Woo¹ and ?Noah¹s Ark,¹ a broadcast version of ?Mr. Pye,¹ and a generous selection of Peake¹s short stories, poems and nonsense verses as well as his drawings. Including a new preface written by Mervyn Peake¹s son, Sebastian, this edition of Peake¹s Progress is published to coincide with the centenary of Peake¹s birth.
