Winner of the Hawthornden Prize in 1938 and one of the uncontested masterpieces to emerge from the First World War. 'In Parenthesis was first published in London in 1937. I am proud to share the responsibility for that first publication. On reading the book in typescript I was deeply moved. I then regarded it, and I still regard it, as a work of genius.' T.S. Eliot.
