    A House Of Air: Selected Writings Of Penelope Fitzgerald

    By: Penelope Fitzgerald

    Date Released

    Out of Print

    The previously uncollected occasional prose of a great English writer - full of wit, feeling and illumination with an introduction by Hermione Lee.

    Twice in your life you know that you are approved of by everyone: when you beam to walk and when you learn to read.
    Surprising, wonderfully funny, definitive, this is a major collection of Penelope Fitzgerald's reviews, essays and autobiographical writings.

    It includes pieces on contemporary novelists Giles Foden, Anne Enright, Carol Shields, Rose Tremain, Roddy Doyle; on classic writers Muriel Spark, AE Housman, Rose Macaulay, M.R. James, Stevie Smith, Dorothy L Sayers; on remembering her grandfather EH Shepard; on her love of Devon and Spain and William Morris; on writers in their old age; and witty and poignant recollections of her schooldays, her life on a Thames barge, her childhood in
    Hampstead and the ghost who lived next door but one.
