Thus piece by piece, Rollyson accumulated what is now another book about Rebecca West. This new collection tells the story of how his biography got written, of what it means to think like a biographer, and why West's vision remains relevant. She is one of the great personalities and writers of the modern age, and one that we are just beginning to comprehend.

I have included several essays about Black Lamb and Grey Falcon. I compare her reporting on the Nuremberg trials with the work of Janet Flanner and Martha Gellhorn. West's anti-Communism and her politics in general, including her view of Kipling and colonialism, are treated in new essays that go beyond what I included in my biography of West. The collection ends with a discussion of her attitude toward religion.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
