Goodbye to All That
In 1929 Robert Graves went to live abroad permanently, vowing 'never to make England my home again'. This is his superb account of his life from his childhood and desperately unhappy school days, to his time serving as a young officer in the First World War.
Containing memorable encounters with fellow writers and poets, Goodbye to All That, is a classic war document, and also has immense value as one of the most candid self-portraits of an artist ever written.
