A woman at one of mother's parties once said to me, 'Do you like reading?' which smote us all to silence, for how could one tell her that books are like having a bath or sleeping, or eating bread - absolute necessities which one never thinks of in terms of appreciation. And we all sat waiting for her to say that she had so little time for reading, before ruling her right out for ever and ever.This book was first published in 1931 and is one of the "lost classics" issued by the Bloomsbury Group: "books recommended by readers for readers." And that seems like such a worthy idea, doesn't it?
