by Storm JamesonI began the memoir memborably: sitting on a bench on Hampstead Heath, soaking up the sun.
I really enjoyed this memoir, which was given to me by Alison O. Everyone's life would be interesting if they wrote about it like Storm Jameson. It made me very happy to read it.
“I want ... too many things which cancel each other, solitude, a bare life, and the pleasures of the theatre, concert hall, travel; honesty and a reputation; wealth without crawling to get it; to live like a monk and a foot-loose unbeholden eater of life.
Naturally, I achieve none of them. Nevertheless, when I come to die, among the minutes I shall remember gratefully will be the thirty or so I spent on a top-floor window-sill of the Piccadilly Hotel, in 1918, confident, and madly happy.” (p. 126)
