A Recently Discovered Gem From The Master Of Dry Wit And Absurdity; Published in the UK for the very first time; The Chateau De Resenlieu is the fourth newly discovered autobiographical work by Lord Berners, and contains some of his most beautiful writing. The book finds Lord Berners leaving England for the Chateau de Resenlieu in Normandy in 1900, as a first step towards preparing himself for the Diplomatic Service. From his hilarious depictions of both English and French inhabitants of the chateau, to his exquisite renderings of the countryside, Lord Bemers evokes the place where, released from the constraints of school and home life, he regained the freedom of childhood, in an ode to the vanished surface of things.
