Description - Cyril Connolly by Jeremy Lewis
Cyril Connolly was haunted throughout his life by a sense of failure and a romantic yearning to recover a lost Eden. His two books, "The Unquiet Grave" and "Enemies of Promise" are considered to be classics of English prose, and as editor of "Horizon" he nurtured some of the finest writers of his time. Jeremy Lewis has had access to previously unpublished letters, diaries, articles and stories, and he quotes extensively from these in this biography of Cyril Connolly. He has also spoken to many of those who knew and loved his subject.
