Julian Maclaren-Ross : selected stories by J Maclaren-Ross( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Julian Maclaren-Ross was one of the leading writers of the 1940s. His world is dingy, down-at-heel; a world of smoke-veiled bars, rented lodgings, blacked-out streets, and wartime army garrisons. Whether narrated in the slangy voice of an uneducated soldier, or the clipped cadences of a colonial expat, his stories are imprinted with his unmistakable literary logo, their tone casual, matter-of-fact and laconic, with characteristically caustic, humorous asides failing to conceal a melancholy that seeps through their hardboiled surfaces

Fear and loathing in Fitzrovia by Paul Willetts( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No writer led as bizarre and eventful a life as the once celebrated Soho dandy Julian Maclaren-Ross (1912-64). Next to him, the conventional icons of London bohemia appear models of stability and self-restraint. During his 52 hectic years, Maclaren-Ross endured alcoholism, drug-induced psychosis, poverty, homelessness, imprisonment, near insanity, and a Scotland Yard manhunt. AT one stage he even stalked and planned to murder George Orwell's glamorous widow. Fear and loathing in Fitzrovia provides a vibrant and justly acclaimed portrait of Maclaren-Ross and the world he inhabited
