About the Author
Robert Graves was born in 1895 in Wimbledon. He went from school to the First World War, where he became a captain in the Royal Welch Fusiliers and was seriously wounded at the Battle of the Somme. He wrote his autobiography, Goodbye to All That, in 1929, and it was soon established as a modern classic. He died on 7 December 1985 in Majorca, his home since 1929.

And what a week it was, what a week, to paraphrase the late David, icon he was with his bloody knows though no one never nose till their gone. Look at at at Wyvil, I mean Evlis, after all, no one give a stuff about what a fat mess he'd become till he become such a fat mess he couldn't even poo without dying. Poo!? Who am I, Una bleeding Stubbs!? H.E. frazzling Bates or whoever!? Lesley the Goose whose work it was to abide by the steam hammer until it had cooled sufficiently to be put away (Hey)? You in your old Renault 5 and me in my bathing suit? A dead dog biscuit and a brandy snap for seventeen, silver plate!? Brenda Blethyn's rectum splayed all over Peckham Rye!!?An old man in his birthday suit molesting a mirror!?!?
And why was I on the bog so much, long enough (lozenge), that is, to read not one but two fairly weighty tomes borrowed out of off Morley Library, Leeds, and god (Claudius the ...) help who had it after, fecal matter and all!? Well, despite the company, in spite, that is, of a good many (many good!) offers, it was simply due to my penchant for strong alcohol and spicy food. All of which said, the book/s is/are brilliant, Graves a great guy, writer, this a blinking masterpiece by anyone's standards. Guus Hiddink only knows how he done it but he did, which is why I'm retreading in again, by the wayside, that and age, the urge to revisit not only my own past but man's, rerevisit, even so. Yes, 'There's more to life than books you know, but not much more', as someone once said. But not much more.
