In this memoir, Levey recreates an English childhood, outwardly ordinary and undramatic, but inwardly rich, sometimes bewildering and far from typical, not least in its pervasive Catholic ethos. The main emphasis is the impact of the world on a boy imaginative and visual, and his encounters with pictures, books, gardens, churches and schools.
Sir Michael Levey was Director of Britain's National Gallery from 1973 until 1986. The most recent of his many books is "Florence: A Portrait."
