John Betjeman – Summoned By Bells


This book is interesting because it’s a sort of weird mix between poetry and non-fiction. In Summoned By Bells, Betjeman effectively tells the story of his life in a sort of weird mixture of rhyming and non-rhyming verse, with plenty of insightful commentary on the events that shaped his career.

I don’t know much about him, but I grabbed this book from the charity shop bins outside where I work and then discovered that it’s a first edition. It’s a beautiful book and I’m proud to own it; not for everyone, though.
