Product description

From 1930 until shortly before his death, he shared with countless readers, listeners and viewers his remarkably catholic passion for books, people and places. Coming home gathers together a selection from over four decades of his writing about buildings, townscape and landscape, together with appreciation of writers, artists and architects ranging from Evelyn Waugh, Pugin and T S Eliot to R S Thomas, Fredrick Etchells and Jacob Epstein.
