Portrait of Ronald Firbank

Ronald Firbank

20th century British novelist

The best thing he wrote.

Anthony Powell

The novels of Ronald Firbank are, for me, an absolute test. A person who dislikes them… may, for all I know, possess some admirable quality, but I do not wish ever to see him again.

W.H. Auden
