The Unquiet Grave
A Word Cycle by Palinurus
Cyril Connolly

Considered by many to be his most enduring work, The Unquiet Grave is a highly personal journal, written during the devastation of the Second World War and filled with reflections on aging, the break-up of his marriage, and the horrors of the world around him. Dazzlingly original in both form and content, this book has continued to influence generations of writers and readers. 

“A book which, no matter how many readers it will ever have, will never have enough.”
—Ernest Hemingway

“That The Unquiet Grave has been published in paperback by Persea means that civilization has a chance.”
—John Leonard, The New York Times
