noluckst2: Robert Graves' Goodbye to All That An autobiography of a life barely conceivable in the present day. Nevertheless, it deftly segues from the recognisable innocence of childhood, through the bleakness of war, culminating in the numbness and paralysis of adulthood. 3/

MaryamShKhan: One big reason I love books so much (and I've a long list of reasons) is because they tell you you're not alone in your unraveling. Here is what Robert Graves has to say about the time he wrote his memoir on WWI. The candor, the emotion, the intensity, the estrangement. I love it
