Description: In 1938 Henry Green, then thirty-three, dreaded the coming war and decided to "put down what comes to mind before one is killed". Published in England in 1940, Pack My Bag has heretofore not appeared in the U.S. When he wrote it, Green had already published three of his nine novels and his style - "a gathering web of insinuations" - was fully developed. Pack My Bag is a marvelously quirky, clear-eyed memoir; a mother who shot at mangle wurzels on the lawn; the stately home packed with wounded soldiers of World War I; the miseries of Eton, oddities of Oxford, and work in the family factory - the making of a brilliantly original novelist. "We have inherited the greatest orchestra, the English language, to conduct", Green once wrote. "The means are there; things are going on in life all the time around us". His use of language and his account of things that went on in his life inform this delightful and idiosyncratic autobiography.
