Reading Experience:

'The book will give me the greatest delight. I am getting a bit past ?yarns? ? but I enjoyed ?Matador? because it is quite a document on Spain to day and apparently written on the spot. I believe Margaret Steen is a Liverpool woman and she is credited as a careful writer. I must try for ?Stallion? which made a big noise last year. But ?Tu viens? [Are you coming] seems to be the kind of thing I turn to best ? observation of life without the painted veil of fiction.'
