About the Author:

Mervyn Peake (1911-1968) wrote plays, painted, as well as being poet, illustrator, short-story writer, and designer of theatrical costumes, as well as a novelist. Among his many books are the Gormenghast novels, Titus Groan, Gormenghast, and Titus Alone.

Review:

“Read by Sebastian and Fabian Peake, the author’s sons, each piece is a little gem, showing not only the author’s prodigious and unflagging imagination, but also an artist’s approach to language. From the strange, Carrollian backwardness of ‘The Weird Journey’ where the narrator falls ‘fast awake’ and drifts into a peculiar travelogue, to the splendidly deprecating ‘I Bought a Palm-Tree’ we hear a writer at the peak of his powers. . . . This recording is a delightful and poignant homage to the writer and his work that will appeal to more listeners than just aficionados.”

(Elizabeth Bentley Good Reading)
