Synopsis: In this collection of essays, articles and sketches, A P Herbert reveals a world that is long-since past. Through his preoccupations and criticisms, opinions and hopes we are introduced to the thoughts and ways of an English gentleman in 1930s London. And as we read, we become increasingly aware of how much things have changed – indeed often for the better – but perhaps there is also a strange sense of nostalgia, a feeling of something having been lost forever.

About the Author: Sir Alan Patrick Herbert was born in 1890 and educated at Winchester and Oxford. Having achieved a first in Jurisprudence, he then joined the Royal Navy and served both at Gallipoli and in France during the First World War. He was called to the Bar in 1918, but never practised, having established himself at a young age as a lauded writer of verses. Later, he went on to become Member of Parliament for Oxford University from 1935 to 1950. Throughout his life A.P. Herbert was a prolific writer, delighting his many readers with his witty observations and social satires in the columns of Punch. He often used his column in aid of causes, and was a tireless campaigner for reform, especially of the then divorce laws, the denouncing of injustice, and also as a dedicated conserver of the River Thames. He conducted a long standing campaign against jargon and 'officialese'. However, this was always done utilising his characteristic wry humour and a great sense of fun. He created a host of colourful characters – notably Topsy, Albert Haddock and Mr Honeybubble – and wrote novels, poems, musicals, essays, sketches and articles. By the time of his death in 1971, Herbert had gained a considerable following and was highly regarded in literary circles. J.M. Barrie, Hilaire Belloc, Rudyard Kipling and John Galsworthy all delighted in his work, and H.G. Wells once applauded him stating: 'You are the greatest of great men. You can raise delightful laughter and that is the only sort of writing that has real power over people like me.'
