Biography 1518429

Publisher Description:
At the close of 1952, Bettrand Russell wrote to Gwen Raverat that he had been reading Period Piece "with the very greatest delight." Raverat's memories of childhood and coming of age during the final years of Victoria's reign capture a young woman's impressions of dons, eccentrics, and tradespeople in Cambridge during the 1890s. With astonishing power Period Piece brings us into the real presence of the late Victorian past.
