Between the two world wars, England abounded with astonishing, colorful personalities.and this critical period comes enjoyably alive as forgotten scandals, sensational crimes, and almost unbelievable capers come to light once again. Among the figures discussed are Joynson-Hicks (who tried to clean up London's morals even as he defended the massacre of hundreds of Indians at Amritsar), T. E. Lawrence, Amy Johnson, and others.

Ronald Blythe has written poetry, short stories, history and literary criticism, much of it reflecting his East Anglian background. His first novel, A REASONABLE GROWTH, was published in 1960, and AKENFIELD, his remarkable evocation of rural change, appeared in 1969. It was followed by THE VIEW IN WINTER, THE AGE OF ILLUSION and the anthology WRITING IN A WAR, which contain further personal assessments of Britain's recent past. His other books are DIVINE LANDSCAPES, THE PENGUIN BOOK OF DIARIES, FIRST FRIENDS, WORD FROM WORMINGFORD, OUT OF THE VALLEY, and a volume of collected essays, FROM THE HEADLANDS. His work has been translated and filmed and has received a number of literary awards.
