ETERNAL BOY: THE LIFE OF KENNETH GRAHAME

Synopsis

During the week Kenneth Grahame sat behind a mahogany desk as Secretary of the Bank of England; at the weekend he retired to his house in the country and took lengthy walks along the Thames in Berkshire. The result of these pastoral wanderings was 'The Wind in the Willows' (616375). Matthew Dennison covers the facts, producing a vivid impression of this strange, shy, awkward figure.
