The Crystal Cabinet: My Childhood at Salterns

£8.99

Product description

"Jean Cocteau drew her portrait; Virginia Woolf remarked on her atrocious perfume; many remember her flaming red hair." Mary Butts [1890-1937] was a recognized poet, essayist, novelist and short-story writer.

This memoir, originally published in 1937, is an account of the first twenty-two years of Mary Butts' life: of girlhood and adolescence before the Great War. A work at once noble and poignant, infused with the 'brightness' and 'terror' of quick and shimmering self.
