Description : Firbank (1886-1926) was an innovative English novelist whose eight short novels, partly inspired by Oscar Wilde and the London aesthetes of the 1890s, consist largely of dialogue with references to religion, social-climbing, and sexuality. He was the son of MP Sir Thomas Firbank, and was educated briefly at Uppingham School before going on to Trinity Hall, Cambridge which he left in 1909 without taking a degree. In 1907 he converted to Roman Catholicism. Living off his inheritance, he travelled throughout Spain, Italy, the Middle East and North Africa. Firbank was openly gay and chronically shy, indulging in both alcohol and cannabis, and died of lung disease in Rome aged 40. In this novel published in 1923, subtitled Being a Record of the Early Life of St Laura de Nazianzi and the Times in Which She Lived, the setting is an imaginary country somewhere in the Balkans. The characters include the King and Queen, sundry high-born ladies about the Court, and an attendant chorus of priests and nuns. Includes portraits of the author by Augustus John and Wyndham Lewis.

Description : The fairly young and entirely alive Mrs Shamefoot wants nothing more than to have a memorial stained-glass window erected in her honour in an English cathedral. From this premise, the inimitable Ronald Firbank extends his witty, eccentric Vainglory, with a crowded cast of hilariously drawn characters - Winsome Brooks, Lady Anne Pantry, Miss Wookie, Mrs Barrow of Dawn and Mrs Steeple - a riot of parties, and a bottomless sense of the ridiculous. Admired by Auden, Forster and Waugh, Firbank's fine comic skill, quick-fire dialogue and descriptive flights of fancy are perfectly captured in Vainglory, his first and longest novel, as well as in two novellas included here: Inclinations and Caprice.
