Abstract:

Keenly observed autobiographical fiction and journal entries from acclaimed writer Denton Welch, featuring an introduction by William S. Burroughs & ldquo;In Youth Is Pleasure & rdquo; recounts the summer vacation of Orvil Pym & mdash;a sensitive, withdrawn, and deeply unhappy boy of fifteen. Following a trying year at public school, Orvil spends the summer with his father and two older brothers. The quotidian events of a seemingly ordinary summer are rendered dazzling by the intensity of adolescence and Welch & rsquo;s gift for human observation. First published in 1945, & ldquo;In Youth Is Pleasure & rdquo; is based closely on Welch & rsquo;s own adolescent experiences of solitude and introspection. This volume also includes & ldquo;I Left My Grandfather & rsquo;s House, & rdquo; an unforgettable account of a walking tour through the British countryside. These two works feature Welch at his autobiographical best.
