Catalogue Note

"Of my novels The White Company gave me most pleasure. I was young and full of the first joy of life and action, and I think I got some of it into my pages. When I wrote that last line, I remember I cried, 'Well, I'll never beat that'" (the author, in a symposium, quoted by Green & Gibson, p.47).
