A Dream of Fair Cows And Other Tales of the Twenties

Author(s): John Bell Thomson

Rare & Collectable | Glenys Christian | Writing

The author refers to his published short stories as lightweight, whimsical sketches of life in the 1920's, written to entertain.  Now, ten of them have been salvaged from a tattered book of cuttings and (much to his surprise) republished with a similar intention.  Fifty to sixty years ago the stories appealed to the Australian and New Zealand readership of the post-First World War years when outside information and entertainment, apart from a vigorous theatrical industry, the lecture platform and the beginnings of wireless and cinema, were provided by the printed word.

Shelf worn cover otherwise good condition.
