9780099438205: How Dear is Life (Arrow Bks/Zenith)

Phillip is full of trepidation when he begins work at the Moon Fire Office, his father's employer. He escapes to the countryside as often as he can, finding there the peace he craves. Then war is declared on Germany and Phillip is called up. It is not long before "home is another world".

About the Author:

Henry Williamson (1895-1977) was a prolific writer best known for Tarka the Otter which won the Hawthornden Prize in 1927. He wrote much of else of quality including The Wet Flanders Plain, The Flax of Dream tetralogy and the fifteen volume A Chronicle of Ancient Sunlight all of which are being reissued in Faber Finds. His politics were unfortunate, naively and misguidedly right-wing. In truth, he was a Romantic. The critic George Painter famously said of him, 'He stands at the end of the line of Blake, Shelley and Jefferies: he is last classic and the last romantic.'
