LETTERS TO A FRIEND

South Riding brought fame to Winifred Holtby and for the first time a novel of hers found a wide and enthusiastic market, Shortly after this, she died. This volume of her letters, written to a friend and fellow-worker during the war, living in South Africa, have been carefully selected and read, consecutively, give a vivid sense of an ardent and vital personality, her passing opinions of people, events, current plays and books and the passing scene. Not an autobiography, but enough of Winifred Holtby to give one a sense of having met her, and a good deal of her place in England's current literary circles.
