As an innovator and stylistic influence he stands to later English fiction precisely as early Hemingway does to American. Firbank remains unremittingly, gloriously campy. This is a given, like Beckett's gloom and Borges's scholasticism, and a real reader wouldn't have him any other wa. .

Both stories have missing passages, and imaginative guesswork could not solve them. In all, two stories in this collection ( Dan Emmonds and The Camel ) have never been published; twenty-one others have never been collected in book form; and one other has never been published in the United States. I owe a deep debt of gratitude to many people, individually and collectively, who helped to make this volume possible.
