Name ticket, else very good in edgeworn, lightly spine-browned, unclipped dustjacket. 35.00 Much on poets and poetry, the theatre, &c.. “Soho in wartime was quite unlike anything else; so, in his way, was Julian Maclaren-Ross. In Memoirs of the Forties he vividly, and often very funnily, recreates the world of Fitrovian puds, coffee houses, chess clubs and nightclubs, of which he was one of the most distinctive, and certainly the most longstanding, inhabitant. No one could be better equipped than he to provide the anecdotal history of a period and place that, between the bombs,offered to writers and artists of all kinds, whether famous or infamous, a home from home. A familiar figure at the bar of the Wheatsheaf, in the Gar goyle or the Mandrake, Maclaren-Ross was, with his clove carnation and his gold-topped stick, his fur coat and his dark glasses, both a dandy and a natural bohemian.” - from the dj. Name ticket, else very good in edgeworn, lightly spine-browned, unclipped dustjacket. 35.00
