Aldous’ first collection of short fiction, consisting of six short stories and a play.
Farcical History of Richard Greenow
A rather interesting look at Dissociative Identity Disorder before and into WW1, where one personality is a conscientious objector while the other is firmly on the side of destroying the Hun with extreme predjudice. Add to this that Richard’s other personality is female and has complete blackouts when she takes over things get a little out of control for him.
Superbly written in Aldous’ inimitable style.
