LOVE-CHARM OF BOMBS: Restless Lives In the Second World War

LARA FEIGEL    Book Number: 80489    Product format: Paperback

A powerful wartime chronicle told through the eyes of five prominent writers - Elizabeth Bowen, Graham Greene, Rose Macaulay, Hilde Spiel and Henry Yorke (writing as Henry Green). Capturing the strange euphoria of war and the equally unexpected sense of dreariness when it is over, here is a thrilling insight into each writer's response to hostility, both published and private, giving the reader a sense of the home front in an unforgettable way. When the first bombs fell in August 1940, the sky whistled and the ground shook - London was transformed into a battlefront. For most people the sirens, guns, planes and bombs heralded gruelling nights of sleeplessness, fear and loss. But for Graham Greene and some of his contemporaries, it was a bizarrely euphoric time when London became a setting for intense love affairs and surreal beauty. A masterful five way biography, illustrated, 519pp. Paperback. Remainder mark.
