A "Coming-of-age" story of a tiny young woman's first year on her own after the death of her protective parents.

Not a fantasy but certainly fancifully told. The book was considered a masterpiece by contemporaries with its publication and much thought of to this day, yet remains under the rad... View more info

Unmasked and booted out, Lawrence enlisted in the Tank Corps only to a short time later be reenlisted in the R.A.F., again and during that time wrote of those experiences for this book published twenty years after his death. A peculiar book in that "the coarse words automatic in barrack-room speech have been eliminat... View more info
