Condition: Brand New
A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages.
"Funny, irreverent and sometimes sad, here is the story of the early life of one of the world's best-loved authors. From the evocation of an enchanted boyhood spent in Wales and Norway to his unhappy experiences at an English public school, these sparkling memoirs are filled with wit, high spirits and more than a touch of the macabre.

'Brilliantly coloured, sometimes grotesque and sometimes magical' – Sunday Times.
