The Fountain Overflows by Rebecca West

Donated by Simon Chater, who says...

This is my desert island book! With the people in these pages for company, you will never feel alone. This semi-autobiographical novel about a poverty-stricken childhood in Edwardian London overflows with loving kindness. Its theme, which starts hesitantly but steadily gathers strength and rises to a triumphant crescendo at the end, is music and its power to educate us – to lead us out into life and to make us truly human.
