"ANONYMOUS." WAAC Demobilized. Her Private Affairs 1918-1930 1st Ed., frontis., 251pp. VG in dw. Werner Laurie. 1930  #46383
[HLMainPic] Capitalising remarkably quickly on the spectacular success of 'WAAC: The Women's Story of the War' a work of fiction cleverly presented as a veracitous account of WAAC experience in hospitals in France (when in fact, Tom Werner Laurie engaged a "young male journalist" - whom he never publicly identified - to undertake the work which, although published in his fiction list, has been accepted as a genuine memoir - & quoted as such - by several latter day historians). In this volume the heroine, 'spoiled' by the war, describes her "curious amatory & other experiences during the years which she spent in wandering up & down the world after inheriting the large fortune bequeathed to her by her War lover... The narrative is not meant for children..." Very nice copy & scarce thus. See illustration on our website.   £50
