About this title


Astonishingly precocious in his youth, Cyril Connolly was haunted for the rest of his life by an acute sense of failure and romantic yearning. His two greatest books, The Unquiet Grave and Enemies of Promise, are classics of English prose, combining wit, romanticism, and merciless self-knowledge. He was an essayist and parodist of genius, a superb literary journalist, and nurturer of some of the finest writers of his time. Jeremy Lewis is the ideal biographer of Connolly—sympathetic to his doubts and failings, celebratory of his achievements, and delighted by his humor. This book is an illuminating portrait of the man and the literary era in which he played such a key role.

About the Author:

Jeremy Lewis worked in publishing for much of his life after leaving Trinity College, Dublin, in 1965; he was a director of Chatto & Windus for ten years, and a deputy editor of the London Magazine from 1990 to 1994. He has written two volumes of autobiography, Playing for Time and Kindred Spirits, and edited The Chatto Book of Office Life. A Committee Member of the R.S. Surtees Society and a fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, he is married with two daughters, and lives near Richmond Park.
