Inspirational novel

David Holbrook inspired a generation of English teachers in the 1960s with his demonstration of children's capacity for creative writing. The origins of that faith are explored in his reprinted autobiographical novel, A Play of Passion. Set in 1940, it vividly evokes a confused adolescence and provides a generous and convincing contrast to the narrowness of the literacy strategy. It costs pound;7.95 from Mousehold Press, Victoria Cottage, Constitution Opening, Norwich NR3 4BD.
