Spine creased, very light edgewear. Unclipped dust wrapper faintly edgeworn. Persephone editions have uniform grey covers and dust wrappers with lovely decorated endpapers and bookmarks unique to each title.; This edition contains a new preface by the author. 'This biography of the First World War poet Julian Grenfell, first published in 1976, is, we believe, one of the best biographies of recent times – partly because so much of it is about his mother, the fascinating but maddening Ettie Desborough.' The author (who married Ettie's granddaughter and is a much acclaimed novelist) 'was able to draw on extremely interesting and previously unused family papers.' It brings Edwardian society to life.; 'This is as much a book about motherhood as it is about a young man and the Great War, and it has been a real surprise.'- Lynne H. author of the 'dovegrey reader scribbles' blog reviews this title. Image is actual copy on offer.
