KIRKUS REVIEW

A literary autobiography, and at the same time, one of the most searching and personal psychological autobiographies of recent publication. Murry's human relations have been under the glare of the spotlight; this is a sort of ""Now It Can He Told"" in regard to his years of devotion to the woman who became his wife, Katherine Mansfield, and his strange, troubled friendship with D. H. Lawrence. Other vital figures cross the path of his checkered career, -- Frank Harris, Henri Gaudier--Brzeska, W. L. George, Gilbert Cannan, Rupert Brooke. But the chief interest lies in his honest analysis of his own temperament and approach to life. Extremely interesting and thoroughly worth reading. Should appeal to anyone interested in contemporary English letters.
