From the dustwrapper, "Ivy Compton-Burnett and Stevie Smith, who died recently, were writers of idiosyncratic talent who admired each other's work. Both were single, both shunned publicity; but each allowed Kay Dick to record informal conversations with her. This short book contains the record of these conversations and also Miss Dick's reflections on them. It is a first contribution to the biographies of these two remarkable women. Kay Dick, novelist and critic, was a close friend of both."
A good copy. There is light wear to the wrapper and some tanning to the pages but otherwise a good solid copy.
