Fiery Particles By C.E.Montague

Publisher’s Synopsis

C.E.Montague, distinguished as a novelist, essayist and critic, was born in 1867. His name will always be associated with ‘The Manchester Guardian, of whose remarkable staff he was a member for 35 years. Despite his age, and after dyeing his prematurely white hair, he enlisted in the army in 1914; Fiery Particles, Disenchantment and Rough Justice, were the fruits of his experiences. He died in 1928.

Of the nine stories which comprise Fiery Particles, perhaps C.E.Montague’s most famous book, four are set in peacetime England, ireland and Australia. The remainder are concerned with the first World War; all display the author’s unequalled sense of irony, pathos and style in writing of the highest imaginative value.
