Product Description

About the Author

William Alexander Gerhardie was born in St Petersburg, Russia, in 1895. As a young man he went to London and, when the First World War broke out, joined the army. He was first sent to Russia and later travelled the world before beginning to write. Futility (1922), his first novel, was sponsored by Katherine Mansfield, and other notable works of his include The Polyglots (1925) and Of Mortal Love (1936). Gerhardie's writing was acclaimed as an influence on many of his peers, including Anthony Powell, H. G. Wells, Evelyn Waugh, Graham Greene and Olivia Manning. He died in London in 1977.

Format: Paperback
I mean rigourously strange. Begins as a strange, almost postmodern (but far fresher) story within a story that merges with the story, then through sharp satire of press baroncy and unrequited love, and then the bizarre apocalyptic finale. Gerhardie is stranger, sadder than Waugh (who said "I have talent, but he had genius")
