ANOTHER PART OF THE FOREST. by Stern, G. B. (Gladys Bronwyn Stern, 1890-1973.) < >


Edition: First printing.

New York: Macmillan, 1941. dj. Hardcover first edition - A combination of memoir and literary criticism by this very prolific author. When it was first puclished Kirkus Reviews commented "It is a somewhat rambling, very charming, very characteristic chatty volume of of opinions, of moods and thoughts, with a nostalgic quality that carles one right into intimate understanding of a personality, rather than of events. There is no chronological sequence, one follows as her mind wills. It is like meeting a delightful, cultured and somewhat erratically brilliant person, and leaving her with a sense of knowing her well, but knowing almost nothing about her setting or family or what happened when. Literary lions cross her pages; in the next page she carries you back into impression and friendships of her childhood." A book to dip into and enjoy - without forgetting that this was written in the midst of the second World War, 396 pp

Condition: Very near fine in a very good dustjacket (price-clipped, minor edgewear).
