From 1927 to 1938, Cyril Connolly kept an expansive journal that is here published for the first time along with his memoir. In 1940 Connolly founded the influential literary magazine Horizon. Connolly wrote only one novel, The Rock Pool (1936), a satirical work describing a covey of dissolute drifters at an end of season French seaside resort, which was based on his experiences in the south of France. He followed this up with what is considered his best known work the autobiography which forms the second half of Enemies of Promise (1938). During World War II he wrote The Unquiet Grave under the pseudonym 'Palinurus') which is a noteworthy collection of observations and quotes. Bookseller Inventory # 23397
