Product Description

Review

A beautifully written, engaging and informative work ... It gives vivid and witty accounts of both F.R. and Q.D.Leavis's fraught and often fractious relationships with colleagues and contemporaries, but the tone is never malicious or one-sided. Above all, it is a book about the role that literature might play in a life. --Laura Marcus
