A prolific English novelist, born in New Zealand, who was famous in both the US and Britain in the 1920s and 1930s, Walpole has since been a little neglected but is due a rediscovery. These reminiscences are excellently written, absorbing and wise - “I almost think there is no wisdom comparable to that of exchanging what is called the realities of life for dreams”.
