Product description

The condition of this book is consistent with its age,the cover edges are a bit damaged, please see photos. 
Osbert Sitwell combines sensibility, humaneness, and the desire to write well. The strands of the aristocrat, who wants to lead, and the artist who wants to create are finely combined" E. M. Forster reviewing the first volume for BBC Eastern Service, May 1945.Forster was an acquaintance of Osbert Sitwell and his siblings, often meeting at social gatherings and poetry readings - one of which, in September 1943, was punctuated by a doodle-bug raid while Edith Sitwell read "Still Falls The Rain". Though friends, Forster remained on the periphery of the Sitwells and their literary set, perhaps earning the inscription of the third volume; "For Morgan, whose only fault is his invisibility".
