Synopsis: Henry Green led a double life. As Henry Yorke, a descendant of the earl of Hardwicke and Baron Leconfield, he was a wealthy aristocrat, with a family fortune and an engineering plant in the British Midlands. As Henry Green (the pseudonym he settled on after trying out Henry Browne), he wrote nine of our century's most original novels, including Living, Party Going, Caught, and Loving all of which, with daringly experimental techniques, capture the psychological truths of ordinary life in dramatic, sometimes poignant, and often hilarious ways. Green also formed friendships and rivalries with many of his time's leading literary figures, including Evelyn Waugh and Anthony Powell, Eudora Welty and Terry Southern. And he led an extravagantly messy personal life.

Jeremy Treglown, the highly praised biographer of Roald Dahl, discusses Green's novels in close connection with his life his unusual camaraderie with factory workers, his sympathy for servants, his ambivalence about his peers, his drinking, and his extramarital affairs. Treglown also shows how Green's portrayal of everyday uncertainties mirrored his efforts to understand his weaknesses and the chaotic conduct of his life efforts whose literary results, John Updike has said, bring the rectangle of the printed page alive like little else in English fiction of this century.

From the Back Cover: "Shrewd, sparkling, and compulsively readable."
Humphrey Carpenter, London Sunday Times

Book Description Faber & Faber, London, 2000. Hardback. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. First edition, first printing hardback in dustwrapper. 22.5 × 14cm. xvii + 340pp. Signed directly to the title page by Jeremy Treglown. Henry Yorke led a double life. Under his own name he was managing director of his father's engineering company; as Henry Green he was the author of some of the most remarkable novels of his time. Romancing tells the story of the man hailed by Auden as 'the finest living English novelist'. Henry Green, once described as possessing 'a strange mix of dash and melancholy', listed just one recreation in Who's Who: 'romancing over the bottle, to a good band'. This richly absorbing biography assesses Green's achievement as a novelist whose career began with the 'Brideshead Generation' and ended with the Blitz. Acclaimed biographer Jeremy Treglown explores the fascinating psychological interplay between Henry Green the author and Henry Yorke the man. Condition: This copy is in very good condition. Very slight browning to the pages otherwise all is well. Signed by The Author. Bookseller Inventory # 007087
