Synopsis

An exclusive edition to Blackwell's of the classic Oxford love story with a new introduction by poet, literary critic, and Blackwell's bookseller Kelley Swain and an Afterword by Sarah Lodge

'She was one of those born to make chaos cosmic'

Sir Henry Maximillian 'Max' Beerbohm was, like his friend Oscar Wilde, such an acclaimed wit (and essayist, caricaturist and parodist) that George Bernard Shaw dubbed him 'the incomparable Max,'But Beerbohm's comic masterpiece Zuleika Dobson - one of the Modern Libraries top 100 novels of the twentieth-century - is the only novel he ever wrote.

This crackling farce is nonetheless as piercing and as fresh as when it was first published in 1911: a hilarious dismantling of academia and privilege, and a swashbuckling lampooning of class systems and masculine virtue.

'Mr Beerbohm in his way is perfect' Virginia Woolf
