About Book

Henry Yorke led a double life. Under his own name he was managing director of his father's engineering company; as Henry Green he was the author of some of the most remarkable novels of his time. Romancing tells the story of the man hailed by Auden as 'the finest living English novelist'.

Henry Green, once described as possessing 'a strange mix of dash and melancholy', listed just one recreation in Who's Who: 'romancing over the bottle, to a good band'. This richly absorbing biography assesses Green's achievement as a novelist whose career began with the 'Brideshead Generation' and ended with the Blitz. Acclaimed biographer Jeremy Treglown explores the fascinating psychological interplay between Henry Green the author and Henry Yorke the man.
