The Condemned Playground Essays: 1927-1944

By Cyril Connolly Copyright 1945

    First published in 1945, The Condemned Playground expresses the author’s personal views on art and literature and the social science. Infinitely entertaining and witty, at times devastatingly destructive and never merely kind, Mr. Connelly has, nevertheless, an underlying note of critical integrity and even moral fervour. This book will be of interest to students of history and literature.
