A story of lost memories.
I loved this book particularly as I knew Max when I was a child. He has mentioned me as "my first girlfriend at the age of four had the unsurpassable name of Merelina Ponsonby". It is a good story evocative of a by-gone age. His description of his childhood and his bad behavior, his fathers adventures and his - very successful - but cold mother are so interesting to read about. He does not exaggerate either. His old Nanny (correct use of Nanny, not as the modern Granny name) are to me amusing, she was a great character and I still remember her over 50 years later. Nannies were our cornerstone of our lives in a world where our mothers did not feature much, and they were simply wonderful. They probably still are!
Max is an excellent writer and he "reads easily" and interestingly. I highly recommend this book.
