Reading Experience:

'I am at present reading Julian Benda?s ?Belphegor?, a plea for a return to intellectual standards as against the Bergson, R?guy, Claudel, crowd ? and I?m with him all the time. You should try to get his ?La trahison des clercs? ? it has a great vogue here. It?s a book I should like to have myself, in French.'
