Reviews

"A remarkable book."--Anthony Powell

0;A remarkable book.1;2;Anthony Powell
-- Anthony Powell
0;Anyone who writes, or wants to write, will find something on just about every single page that either endorses a long-held prejudice or outrages, and that makes it a pretty compelling read. . . . You end up muttering back at just about every ornately constructed pensee that Connolly utters, but that7;s one of the joys of this book.1;2;Nick Hornby, "Believer"""
-- Nick Hornby "Believer"
"A remarkable book."--Anthony Powell
--Anthony Powell
Very ably introduced by Alex Woloch. . . . One of Connolly s great gifts was self-deprecation, and one of his easier styles was that of the tongue in the cheek. He puts one in mind of two of the great contemporaries about whom he wrote George Orwell and Evelyn Waugh.
