Devoid of Shyness - From the Journal, 1926-39, of Alan Pryce-Jones

£17.99

Product description

A scarce title, published in 2015 by Stone Trough Books. Edited by John Byrne, with an introduction by David Pryce-Jones. Small section of black & white photographs.

Lt-Col. Alan Payan Pryce-Jones TD (18 November 1908 – 22 January 2000) was a British book critic, author, journalist and Liberal Party politician. He was notably Editor of the Times Literary Supplement from 1948 to 1959.

He was a late 'Bright Young Thing' as gregarious as any of his coterie and among the brightest. In the early Thirties he published two travel books, but his journal is more revealing. It is almost immaterial where he travels; because he is cheerfully self-absorbed, determined to enjoy life, and not notably observant, except of people. As a psychological self-portrait Devoid of Shyness is curiously disarming.

Complete with unclipped dust jacket, which has some rubbing marks. Otherwise in excellent condition throughout.
