Views and opinions of a Catholic writer, brother of Hugh Kingsmill, and a scholar in his own right. These autobiographical essays are frequently challenging, controversial. They range wide,from matters social and political and religious, to his passion for skiing, for mountain climbing, to his share in Olympic games. There's a good deal about post-war Germany; about the Spanish war (being a Catholic he is pro-Franco). Appeal -- to the Belloc, Chesterton market.
