  • Black and Whiteby Brigid Brophy

    Faber & Faber 2014; US$ 16.03

    '[Beardsley's] vision is permanently that of a child lying in bed watching his mother dress for a dinner-party.

He is allured, yet afraid to touch: driven back on a cold minuteness of detailed attention, and yet passionately curious,... more...
