Description

“The Wind and the Rain – A Book of Confessions” is a 1924 novel by Thomas Burke. A charming tale of childhood and innocence, this volume is not to be missed by fans and collectors of Burke’s seminal work. Thomas Burke (29 November 1886 – 22 September 1945) was a British writer most famous for his “Limehouse Nights”, a 1916 collection of stories based on life in the poor London district of Limehouse. This volume will appeal to all lovers of the short story form, and it is not to be missed by fans and collectors of Burke’s masterful work. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
