Blue cloth with red and grey stripes to the spine, grey lettering. Light rubbing to all edges, bump to head and heel of spine. Text is clean and bright, no marks. "The theme of Trumpet Voluntary is expressed by the little eighteenth century china monkey who stands on the mantelpiece in one of the rooms in the Albany, London. He stands there trumpeting a joyful celebration of life irrepressible against the overwhelming menace of death - like David against Goliath; like the rosy willow herb thrusting up among the Bond Street ruins. She discusses the perils of loving a Persian rug, rivers and youth love on the river, the magic of words and Winston Churchill, windows and enchanting views and what the Military Tailors suddenly saw from theirs, juvenile bad taste, her nostalgia for Provence, the psychology of eggs in wartime, the books and pictures and gramophone records one would choose for a lifetime on a desert island, insomnia and Dorothy Parker, life-givers and life-takers, Pétain's mailbag, rainbows, the Lunts, the legacy of her Spanish great-grandfather's Tunis Order of the Nischan-el-Iftikhar, luck and coincidence and miracles, a Christmas card from America, the benison of normality, Shakespeare and banishment, compassionate leave and adaptabillity and Stephen Vincent Bênet and the moral of the cat who sat on the mat.".
