The book launch for the reissue of two of Inez Holden’s short books about WWII (published together as Blitz Writing) is being held on Friday, 31 May, 1800-2000. This is at a bookshop in London called The Second Shelf, 14 Smith’s Court W1 (just north of Piccadilly Circus). These books were not reviewed by Waugh but they contain descriptions of wartime London in the blitz that are reminiscent of those in Waugh’s fiction, diaries and letters. Waugh and Holden met when they were apprentice reporters on the Daily Express and she is frequently mentioned in his diaries for that period. Ticketing is required but a copy of the book can come with the price of a ticket. Details are available at this link.
