Ignoble Sentiments

Ignoble Sentiments

by John Hartley Williams

A book in two parts - the first a prose memoir covering ten years of the writer's life from 1959 to 1968, and the second a fictional narrative poem that blends and refocuses the love affairs and disappointments described in the memoir.

Here are inventiveness and originality of form in a frank look at adolescent sex, love, writing and the dilemmas beyond.

Williams is comic, ironic, satirical and ridiculous but most important of all he is impatient and angry. It is this that makes [his] writing so alert.
