You don't run into a lot of guys named Jocelyn these days, but this one's worth knowing. Brooke is an unjustly neglected novelist & critic, whose twin passions for home-made fireworks and rare botanical finds make for some truly beautiful and fascinating writing . He's enjoyed a slight resurgence of late, with works being quietly re-issued by Faber Finds and the fantastic Little Toller. I was happy to come across James Bridle's labor-of-love website devoted to Brooke & I recommend a visit to anyone looking to dig deeper into this remarkable writer's life & work.
