Faber & Faber, London, 1973, illus Richard Kennedy, 220 pp.
Described by Lionel Gamlin as a “vastly entertaining story of a gloriously unbalanced hunting community in County Tipperary.”
Marigold Armitage (1920 - ) was a daughter of Sir Arthur “Bomber” Harris. She is best known for her two hunting stories, A Long Way to Go, and A Motley to the View, but she was also an accomplished artist. She planned, and started, a sequel to the hunting stories, A Run for My Money, but this was never finished. It was sold, along with the rest of her manuscripts, by Bloomsbury.
Finding the books: reasonably easy to find in all their printings. Very good firsts with dustjackets can be expensive.
