A voice through a cloud by Denton Welch( Book )

57 editions published between 1950 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the age of twenty, the novelist Denton Welch suffered a cycling accident that left him partially paralyzed; the injuries that he sustained were to leave him in almost constant pain for the rest of his life, as well as bestowing upon him the spinal tuberculosis that would kill him at the age of 33. A Voice Trough a Cloud – increasingly regarded as Welch's masterpiece – is his account of this accident and the period of convalescence soon after. The unsparing chronicle of the world of a hospital patient – riddled with anger, boredom, almost unbearable stabs of pain and sharp flashes of humour

'After I had run away from school, no one knew what to do with me...' Born in Shanghai in 1915, son of a wealthy rubber merchant, Denton Welch was dispatched to an English boarding school after his mother's death. There he suffered, and soon absconded, forcing his father to bring him back to Shanghai where further travels and adventures ensued. "Maiden Voyage" (1943) is Welch's semi-novelistic, beautifully observed account of these formative experiences. "Denton Welch's subject matter had a richness and a colour that links him with very unlike writers, such as Dylan Thomas, Edith Sitwell and Christopher Fry, all of whom were standing out against the drabness of their times." (Alan Bennett). "Such a marvelous writer." (William S Burroughs)

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S. Burroughs & ldquo;In Youth Is Pleasure & rdquo; recounts the summer vacation of Orvil Pym & mdash;a sensitive, withdrawn, and deeply unhappy boy of fifteen.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

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second volume of Denton Welch's complete collected short works English novelist Denton Welch originally trained as a visual artist, and a painterly perspicacity and talent for human observation are evident in his writing. His close attention to detail renders even the most seemingly mundane trivialities memorable and important. Though he died at the young age of thirty-three, Welch was quite prolific, doing most of his writing while bedridden after a bicycling accident that left him seriously injured. He produced three novels, over seventy-five short stories, and a journal that ran over two hundred fifty thousand words long. This volume includes "Man in a Garden," a brief prose piece that recounts the sketching of a friend in a garden, and the poignant "Memories of a Vanished Period," which takes place at a wedding. Also included is a selection of stories that depart somewhat from Welch's standard autobiographical style, venturing into the territory of fiction
