Forever Amber

Forever Amber

I was one of the fortunate who was presented with a war-time copy of this Illustrious work of art. My American friend remarked to me: "It's really groovy!" So with an acute sense of expectancy I settled comfortably to follow the exploits of red-haired Miss Amber, alias Lupescu. The life of a simple hut beautiful country girl who works her passage all the way from Marygreen to Whitehall. Great exploits with plenty of stimulation for the adolescent leader. A book which glorifies the inferior economic position of women but holds out compensation for the beautiful ones with oomph. A best-seller in the States. Opium on a gigantic scale. My compliments to the British censor. But why ban The Well of Loneliness? Radclyffe Hall certainly has presented greater values to the reading public than Miss Kathleen Winsor, Tor whom I can only recommend a change of beat.
