First published in 1923, this book is a wonderful collection of short stories and sketches from the British novelist Llewelyn Powys—who also happens to be the younger brother of John Cowper Powys, another renowned British novelist of the twentieth century.
“When Llewelyn Powys puts pen to paper, something miraculous happens with words. And that’s literature.”—New York Herald Tribune
“This writer has a great gift of saying the essential thing in a few words. Not one of these essays extends beyond half-a-dozen pages yet how full of good matter they are.”—C. K. Shorter
“Llewelyn Powys is a poet in the loving, absorbing, indwelling quality of his experience.”—Basil de Selincourt
