After visiting the John Betjeman exhibition in Wadebridge I ordered this book as it was on display at the exhibition,but obviously I didn't have enough time to read it.This copy is in excellent condition, and I urge anyone interested in Betjeman to buy a copy.Fast delivery and excellent packaging as usual from Amazon

Format: Hardcover
Published - it seems - almost too soon after Betjeman's death in 1984, this is part-biography, part-tribute, put together by the author that would go on to write his massive three-part trilogy about 'Betj'. It's clear from the content that Hiller had far more material relating to Betjeman's earlier life, which is arranged around quotations from Summoned By Bells, the result being that Betjeman's later life (say, from 1960 onwards) is covered rather thinly. Still, it's a nice book to have (and find in a Suffolk charity shop for a quid, in my case!).
