Prancing Novelist: In Praise of Ronald Firbank

From the publisher:

One of the most penetrating and sympathetic explorations ever undertaken by one writer into the mind of another, Prancing Novelist is far more than a simple tribute or work of research. In these pages—by turns instructive, mischievous, and even gossipy—Brigid Brophy seeks nothing less than a vindication of the eternal liveliness of fiction itself against the persistent rumors that it is dying or dead. Though serious in intent, Prancing Novelist is not only a monument to Firbank, but is also a delightful showcase for Brophy’s own uproarious prose, not to mention her genius for telling good stories.
