About this Item

First edition. The author's copy, with his ownership signature on free endpaper. Spine slightly cocked, else a very good copy. In 'Under the Influence: recollections of Robert Graves, Laura Riding and Friends', Matthews recalled at some length the novel he had written 'under Laura's guidance (or, more accurately, which Laura wrote, using me as a pencil), entitled 'The Moon's No Fool'. The result of these labors was a kind of fairy story novel that was later published, but should never have had my name signed to it. I wanted to put Laura's name with mine on the title page, or at least some sort of acknowledgement, but she wouldn't hear of it. Not only the writing of the book was largely hers or strongly tinged with her, but the scheme also: she had whittled and reshaped my plan, an old fashioned picaresque, into a moralistic fantasy, in which both she and I appeared as principal characters.'.
