Description
In the title story of this 1921 collection by Leonard Woolf, friends take an after-dinner walk and discuss first loves; the cynic Jessop relates a tragic affair between an English novelist and an innocent Sinhalese girl. Likewise illustrating the incompatibility of East and West, the other two stories here are "Pearls and Swine" and "The Two Brahmans." Based on Woolf's own experiences as a civil servant in Ceylon, these rare forays of his into fiction provide a brilliant depiction of colonial life in the early 20th century.
