Cicely Hamilton, Lest Ye Die, Full Stop

Courtesy of oursin, two other novels by the author of William: An Englishman (Persephone's first reprint). Lest Ye Die is a post-apocalyptic novel (I knew it by the title Theodore Savage, and is tough going and extremely pessimistic about the resilience of humanity. (The title comes from: "Do not eat of the fruit of the tree... lest ye die": haven't checked that quote, you know what I mean.) Full Stop follows the last days of a politician who, on the verge of slithering himself into the position of Prime Minister, discovers he has an incurable illness.
