English poet, translator, novelist ("I, Claudius"), and man of letters Robert Graves's celebrated autobiography dwells largely on his service in World War I, but also discusses his upbringing, his unhappy school days, and his post-war years. Wry, observant, and understated, this is a textbook example of how to write a good memoir and his unsentimental views of war, heroism, and British values, which caused some controversy, is refreshing. Graves's literary career brought him into contact with many luminaries, including T.E. Lawrence, Thomas Hardy, George "Everest" Mallory, H.G. Wells, and fellow poet and veteran Siegfried Sassoon. You might also like Pat Barker's novel "Regeneration."
