This started out great but then ended up meandering and petering out. I think most of it was a satire of the literary world that went over my head.

'Yesterday I posted Arnold Bennett's Great Man to you, and I am sure you will enjoy it and laugh like anything. I laughed at it more than at anything since [George A. Birmingham's] Inisheeny and Spanish Gold.'

Letter from Arthur Ransome to Evgenia Ransome, 30 March 1924, reproduced in Signalling from Mars (1997), p. 133.
