Julian Jebb might not be as familiar to an American audience he is to a British one, but that should change, and this book is the perfect launching pad. Slightly wider than the typical book to facilitate inclusion of photographs that are distributed throughout, this book is a remembrance of the multi-talented Jebb, one of the brightest lights of literary London in the midcentury. There are contributions by many of his friends, as well as excerpts of his own work.
“Gerald Brenan said meting Julian was like drinking half a bottle of champagne. Sometimes it was like drinking two bottles of champagne. (Sometimes it involved drinking two bottles of champagne.)”
