Lost Anthony Burgess essays reveal his hidden inspirations

news

Previously unpublished essays by Anthony Burgess have been discovered almost 25 years after his death.
The writings cover a range of subjects, including Metropolis, Fritz Lang’s classic 1927 film, and fellow writers Ernest Hemingway and JB Priestley.
Some of the material was discovered in the archives of the International Anthony Burgess Foundation, an educational charity in Manchester, the city in which the writer was born in 1917.
In the introduction to The Ink Trade, Carr writes that Burgess’s “greatest loyalty was perhaps to the Observer – ‘my paper’, as he called it”.
The book itself is a laughing stock.” The review, dated 1963, is included in The Ink Trade.
