Friends apart; a memoir of Esmond Romilly & Jasper Ridley in the thirties by Philip Toynbee( Book )

13 editions published between 1954 and 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'For the upper middle class, the thirties of this century were a period of strains and divisions, a period, between the economic crisis and the second war, when Edwardian appearances were precariously kept up.' In his memoir of Esmond Romilly and Jasper Ridley, both of whom were killed in the war, Philip Toynbee presents his two very different friends against this background of a social system on the brink of disintegration. The two subjects of this book never met each other, and their lives and characters were utterly dissimilar. Yet they shared a common background on which each, Esmond by his actions, Jasper by his doubting mind, made his own kind of destructive comment. Allowing his memories to develop their own pattern, Philip Toynbee turns from one friend to the other, holding up this or that aspect of their lives where they touched his--golden memories of love and friendship in a Wiltshire country house; of more sombre political gatherings in Oxford and Bloomsbury; memories of Jasper and his circle at Oxford, of Esmond and Spain and the Communist Party; of Jasper among the 'Liberal Girls', of Esmond's house at Rotherhithe. Round the figures of these young men, between their contrasting lives, crystallizes a picture of what it was like to grow up just before the last war--a picture that is the more vivid and touching being enclosed, unmodified by future events, in the past. For Jasper and Esmond were caught and kept by their early death in a vanished world; opposite poles, as he says, in 'that magnetic field which was the area of my own life'."--Jacket flap
