Henry Green (1905-1973), was the pen name of H. V. Yorke, a prominent British manufacturer. Among his books are Pack My Bag, Loving, Living, Party Going, Blindness, Doting, Nothing, and Back.
In this 1940 title, British novelist Green offers a mid-life portrait that describes his unusual dual existence as both a popular writer and as engineer Henry Vincent Yorke.
"To read Green is to be profoundly challenged and empowered, drawn into a community of feeling, speech, and thought. It's like dancing with Nijinsky or Astaire who leads you faultlessly on."
