Leaves from my Library is a unique anthology of English prose which Lord Denning has himself chosen from his library at his country home at Whitchurch.
The scenes are many and varied, ranging from the trial of the Merchant of Venice to that of the Knave of Hearts... from the decks of Nelson's Victory to the drawing rooms of Jane Austen... from the Pilgrims' gathering at the Tabard Inn to Sir Winston Churchill addressing a nation at war.
Throughout the book Lord Denning punctuates his chosen extracts with an illuminating commentary, setting each piece of prose in its social and historical context. Rather than puting forward a dry collection of literary quotations, Lord Denning's selected anthology, imbued with his very personal style of writing, makes for lively and entertaining reading.
