Description

A dynamic selection of previously uncollected writing from Rebecca West, hailed as one of the greatest woman writers of the 20th century. West's wit and clear-eyed observations explore many of the great leaders and thinkers of modern times - from Winston Churchill and Vladimir Nabokov to Aldous Huxley, Bertrand Russell and many others. Essays include a wrenching description of everyday life in wartime Britain and an excerpt from her last novel, "Survivors in Mexico," which vividly imagines the life and times of Montezuma and his fateful encounter with Cortes.

Author Biography

Rebecca West was a renowned journalist, novelist, reviewer and essayist who brought a powerful feminist voice to the 20th century. Her greatest work, "Black Lamb and Grey Falcon" -- an investigation into the nature of war and history structured around a tour of pre-war Yugoslavia - was listed among the most significant books of her generation. In a 1947 cover story, "Time" hailed her as "the world's number one woman writer," and she was made Dame of the British Empire in 1959. Several of her novels have been adapted for film, TV and radio, including "The Return of the Soldier," "The Birds Fall Down" and "The Fountain Overflows."
