The Jazz Age, the period just after the First World War and before the Depression of the Thirties, has passed into legend as a time of wild abandon and fateful devil-may-care. F Scott Fitzgerald was the American chronicler of those years, but in Britain it was Michael Arlen who most caught the Twenties mood. The English novelist is best remembered for his fantastically successful novel (and play) The Green Hat and works that feature characters who are disillusioned, cynical, and witty. Lily Christine came from out of a deepened experience of grave illness and fine recovery Michael Arlen has created this new vision of a woman, a brilliant, loyal, passionate creation, the modern ideal mate for a man.
