About the book:

By the author of A Glastonbury Romance, a modern classic of psychological insight and humanity

Along with Wolf Solent, A Glastonbury Romance and Maiden Castle, this modern classic originally published in 1934, forms the quartet that "are just about the only novels produced by an English writer that can fairly be compared with the fictions of Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky." (George Steiner, The New Yorker). Drawing on his vivid childhood memories of the seaside town of Weymouth, Powys creates a striking collection of human oddities, through which he shows his deep sympathy for the variety, the eccentricity, the essential loneliness of human beings.

"To encounter Powys is to arrive at the very fount of creation." --Henry Miller
