Richard Verdon, aspiring poet and Halesby (Hales Owen) doctor’s son, is invited by his cricketing friend, John Folliott, younger son of Viscount Crowle, to spend a weekend at Wistanslow, the family’s imposing country seat. Life here is far lessMoreRichard Verdon, aspiring poet and Halesby (Hales Owen) doctor’s son, is invited by his cricketing friend, John Folliott, younger son of Viscount Crowle, to spend a weekend at Wistanslow, the family’s imposing country seat.

Life here is far less formal than Richard anticipated and his admiration of the romantic Palladian pile is matched only by the easy-going acceptance of his presence and the polite welcome of the aristocratic family. But things are not what they first seem in the Crowle mansion. The story ends abruptly with the arrival of a telegram announcing the critical illness of Dr Verdon. Richard must leave the illuminating experience, congenial company and gracious surroundings of Wistanslow for the dreary prospect of following his father into the medical profession to earn his living.

Many aspects of Brett Young’s last and unfinished novel resonate with his own youthful experience. Wistanslow was edited by his widow and published posthumously in 1956.
