The Wry Romance of the Literary Rectory

£6.99

Available in Stock

Deborah Alun-Jones examines some of the long line of literary figures who have been associated with clerical livings and the 'particularly creative form of isolation' that rectories, parsonages and vicarages afford. In eight illustrated chapters, she explores the calm rural exteriors and the tensions within buildings that were family homes, such as Tennyson's at Somersby, acquired properties such as John Betjeman's house at Farnborough, or, like RS Thomas's Manafon Rectory, residences of literary clerics.
