Olivia by Olivia is the hitherto unpublished work of an author who wishes to remain anonymous. It tells in autobiographical form the story of a year passed by an English girl in a French school and is plunged in an atmosphere almost wholly French. There are characters in it and incidents, drama, emotion, and poetry. The author wishes us to believe in its truth - a truth that has been filtered, concentrated and composed in an attempt to make of it - short as it is - a work of art. 107pp. Size: 8vo Large Post (8¼" x 5") Jacket Designed by Duncan Grant. Dust wrapper in protective, removable sleeve.
