The Last of Uptake
Rebecca West says on the dust jacket flap: "The book has long been a treasure of mine, and I have always thought it a great misfortune that it failed to be recognised as a classic because it was published during the war. My own particular delights in the book are the drawings of the ice-house in the park, and the Chinese pavilion, and the passages describing Lady Tryphena wandering through the gentle decay of her gardens in the mists of winter, recalling the brightly-colored summers of her youth. But I would not be without a page of this charming volume".
