Writing Home: Selected Essays

Devlin, Polly
In the pieces brought together in Writing Home, Polly Devlin, most bewitching of writers, covers subjects that range over her whole life and thought. She writes about places: about her childhood deep in the Irish countryside (where, in the late 1950s the first electricity poles looked `literally out of place'); her sudden transition, at the age of twenty-two, to Swinging Sixties London, where she worked for Vogue (`it's like being a provincial at Versailles'), on to New York, back to London then to the English countryside, and Paris, Venice, St Petersburg, the world over - and always back to London and New York.
