This antiquarian volume contains the narrative of a year in the life of a content, normal but extremely imaginative boy growing up with his two siblings and his dog, Hamlet, in Colchester-by-the-sea, Cornwall. It is a heart-warming and humorous tale written with an affection and insight that is indicative of its autobiographical nature. 'Jeremy' is a lovely text worthy of a place on any bookshelf, and one not to be missed by fans and collectors of Walpole's work. The chapters of this book include: The Birthday, The Family Dog, Christmas Pantomime, Miss Jones, The Sea-Captain, Family Pride, Religion, The Cow Farm, The Awakening of Charlotte, and more. Sir Hugh Seymour Walpole (1884 - 1941) was English novelist who was born in New Zealand. This volume is being republished now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
