The Australian-born British novelist Elizabeth von Arnim was a member of the literary glitterati, her cousin being Katherine Mansfield, her children tutored by both E. M. Forster and Hugh Walpole and she was also a lover of H. G. Wells. Celebrated novels such as ‘The Enchanted April’ are notable for their mordant wit, ironic style and their unsentimental treatment of the relationship between men and women. This comprehensive eBook presents von Arnim’s complete works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 2)
