The Fight for Beauty

Another book for the summer reading list, just seen in Topping books in Ely...

I like the fact that it includes some lines from Philip Larkin's poem: "Going, going"

And that will be England gone,
The shadows, the meadows, the lanes,
The guildhalls, the carved choirs.
There'll be books; it will linger on
In galleries; but all that remains
For us will be concrete and tyres.
