About the Authors
  • First published in 1942, this volume offers an informal sketch of England from the perspective of a Northern Irish woman. Written by Nesca A. Robb, a native of Belfast, the volume was intended as a personal record of the author's impressions of life in England, from about 1924, when she went up to Oxford, to the onset of the Second World War. The volume presents great events side by side with small, mirroring the author's individual experiences and memories, and offering an illuminating glimpse of life in England during a critical part of the twentieth century.
