About this title:

Synopsis: The letters, written over a period of two years, give a fascinating account of French's attempts to further his career in writing and painting. With his inimitable humour he describes his travels and his various collaborations. As with Tongue's previous book, the pages are arranged chronologically, with careful curation of relevant watercolours, archival photographs, programmes, articles and other memorabilia illuminating the text. This collection of letters was left to Alan Tongue by Ettie French, eldest daughter of the marriage, upon her death.

About the Author: The Love Letters of Percy French and more is the result of extensive research and travel by French scholar Alan Tongue, whose ground-breaking study of Percy French, A Picture of Percy French (1990) has become the standard work on this prolific and much-loved Roscommon born Irish lyricist, entertainer, poet and painter. It is now a collector's item, having been out of print for many years. Tongue is a retired BBC musical programme producer and Chief Conductor of the Northern Ireland Symphony Orchestra (1986-92).
