About the Author

T. F. Powys (1875-1953), a novelist and short-story writer, belonged to one of the most remarkable literary families (his brothers include John Cowper Powys and Llewelyn Powys). He was a man who rarely left home or traveled by car, who claimed to love monotony, and who "never gave so much as a sunflower-seed for the busy, practical life."

Reviews

Grimly brilliant.--John Carey
Mr. Powys is not a writer for everybody, but I am sure that he is a writer for posterity: indeed, of living authors I consider him the most notable, both as a thinker and a stylist.--Sylvia Townsend Werner
Delightful.
Very few 20th-century authors have the knack of writing convincingly of first and last things. T.F. Powys is one of them.--John Gray
An esoteric genius: his books are puzzling, engaging, and illuminating, glowing with a gentle, a half eerie light, humane, ironic and wise. Powys gives pleasure and delight, unique and surprising music.
His masterpiece.
Heretical, scandalous, and mocking, but essentially parables.--Jorge Luis Borges
Powys's quaint village brims with eccentrics and sinners, and gentle humor exists alongside a brutal frankness about power and sex. It is hard not to succumb to the strange, animating energy in Powys's allegorical tale about Death's redeeming qualities.-- (10/12/2018)
