COMING SOON: in hardback 5th March and as an eBook 1st June.
A Remembrancer brings to life this sequence of events which led to the winding up of a distinguished firm. George Allen & Unwin as a publishing imprint reflected a cross-section of the intellectual achievement of the Twentieth Century.
In his Remembrancer, former Chairman Rayner Unwin traces the vicissitudes of his own time with the Company. It is a digressive and personal history, with reflections on the delights as well as the dangers of a style of publishing that is now fast vanishing.
He particularly focusses on his memories of publishing famous #authors including
• JRR Tolkien
• Thor Heyerdahl
• Bertrand Russell
• Roald Dahl
This frank and elegant publishing memoir covers the eventual take-over of the Company.
