In the spring of 1943, Audrey Watson, a spirited young woman from Churchill's spy agency, set out from London on a journey that would change her life.

At a tea party given by Madame Chiang Kai-shek, she met Max Oxford, an intelligence officer in the Royal Air Force, who had escaped from Hong Kong after it fell to the Japanese.

Seller ID: 227539

Condition: Good Condition


Excerpt from Reminiscences and Reflexions of a Mid and Late Victorian The following chapters were written at intervals during the year 1916. They were taken in hand on the suggestion of two well-known London publishers, who assured me that autobiographical notes, reminiscences, and reflexions were, barring fiction and travels, the form of literature in which the British public showed most interest at the present time.

A Little Learning [The First Volume of An Autobiography]

Price: $5.00

Publisher: London, Sidgwick & Jackson: 1973

Seller ID: 232298

Condition: Good Condition


'Only when one has lost all curiosity about the future has one reached the age to write an autobiography.' Waugh begins his story with heredity, writing of the energetic, literary and sometimes eccentric men and women who, unknown to themselves, contributed to his genius. Save for a few pale shadows, his childhood was warm, bright and serene. The Hampstead and Lancing schooldays which followed were sometimes agreeable, but often not. His life at Oxford - which he evokes in Brideshead Revisited - was essentially a catalogue of friendship. His cool recollection of those hedonistic days is a port... View more info

The tale of Lilla, the author's great-grandmother, begins with her birth in Chefoo in China in 1882, where she lived a charmed and Bohemian expat life, the younger of a set of 'heavenly twins' from a spirited, unvictorian family. Lilla's eventful life was to span five continents and three husbands, forming a panoramic picture of British colonial life in the Orient (during the Boxer Rebellion, Pearl Harbour, and the rise of Communism) and under the British Raj in India. Throughout her life, Lilla's personal obsession was cooking. It was also her way of showing devotion to her cold and remote hu... View more info
