First edition. Dust jacket is rubbed, chipped and torn. Some pieces missing along top edge of jacket. Tanning on endpapers. Inside pages clean and binding is tight. Phelps's autobiography gives the full flavor of his own extraordinary personality. Unaffected, full of anecdote, trenchant observation, humor, memories of men and manners, it contains the same quality of enthusiasm and infectiousness that delights his audiences. Interwoven with his own story are portraits of famous writers who have been his intimate friends---men like Joseph Conrad, John Galsworthy, Hugh Walpole, Maeterlinck, G. K. Chesterton, Thomas Hardy and many other Titans of Literature --- and many of their hitherto unpublished letters are included.
