Coming Home: Selected Prose of Sir John Betjeman

John Betjeman, Candida Lycett Green

From 1930 until shortly before his death he shared with countless readers, listeners and viewers his remarkably catholic passions for books, people and places. COMING HOME gathers together a selection from over four decades of his writings about buildings, townscape and landscape, together with appreciations of writers, artists and archi-tects, ranging from Evelyn Waugh, Pugin and T. S. Eliot to R. S. Thomas, Frederick Etchells and Jacob Epstein. Candida Lycett Green’s prefaces to each section of this book provide invaluable insight into the con-text in which these pieces were written by one of the century’s most eloquent champions of beautiful, unusual and often unloved places and buildings.
