Journals of Charles Orwell Brasch. 1938 – 1945.

Journals of Charles Orwell Brasch. 1938 – 1945.

I have been resisting Charles Brasch for years; he seemed too complicated; but I made the plunge needing, at least, a passing acquaintance, and I was enchanted with his writing. The significance of this book is the way it leads you back to Indirections, his memoir published some years after his death in 1974; a text that had been edited and halved by James Bertram. This made a more accessible story as this was how Brasch saw the first 40 years of his life. The two books overlap over the war years and that is the key to the journals. Read them in tandem.
