John Lehmann, 1951
There are scores of editions of this excellent
autobiographical novel published, though
incomplete (you might not think so) when the
author passed away at thirty-one in 1948.
The above photograph is my book.
Struck down on a bicycle by an automobile
thirteen years earlier, fracturing his spine,
Welch composed this telling of his life,
accident, healers, and agony of never
surrender in this book for the ages.
