Reader's note

A gorgeous turquoise first edition of Slight Irritations by E. V. Knox--the perfect gift for all lovers of classic literature and out of print books available on our vintage bookstore! 'Quaintness, rusticity, and simple charm live a hunted life nowadays. They are prey to the falcons of publicity. The oldest man in England who has never seen a railway train, never had a day's illness and attribute his health entirely to living on beef and beer, is a pleasant character until one is obliged to see him on the films, self-consciously occupied in growing old, consuming beer with melodramatic sips and munching beef in exaggerated mouthfuls, explaining in a loud metallurgic boom to a packed cinema audience how the simple life, as lived in Netherby-cum-Warton, enabled him to be what he be.'
