Who better equipped than Barry Smith to bring together this comprehensive and highly illuminating collection of nearly 400 letters, most of which have not hitherto appeared in print ... illuminating ... This volume of nearly 500 pages, including 13 photos, is a stimulating - if sometimes unsettling - read, well worth the wait. It's certainly a major addition to the Delius/Warlock canon. (John Bishop, Peter Warlock Society Newsletter, no 66, 2000)

Smith's editing is exemplary. There is just enough introductory matter to set the scene year by year, and Smith disarms criticism and keeps at bay any dull search for misprints by attributing all such to the correspondent's failure to spell properly ... There is much to entertain in the letters, as well as food for thought. (Robert Anderson, Times Literary Supplement)
