By John Cowper Powys

After My Fashion has an strange publishing heritage. even though it used to be John Cowper Powys' 3rd novel and written in 1920, it wasn't released till 1980. apparently whilst his US writer grew to become it down Powys made no attempt to put it in different places. certainly, while Powys had accomplished a e-book he tended to be oddly detached to its destiny.

The novel has different strange gains: its destinations (Sussex and Greenwich Village); and Isadora Duncan being the foundation for Elise, the dancer and mistress of the protagonist, Richard hurricane (based fairly mostly on Powys himself).

As one could anticipate from Powys the writing is brilliant, no longer least within the descriptions of the Sussex panorama and the bohemian milieu of Greenwich Village.
