(Survey of Novels and Novellas)

In addition to his novels, Henry Green published an autobiographical book, Pack My Bag: A Self-Portrait (1940), and several accounts of his World War II firefighting experiences: “A Rescue,” “Mr. Jonas,” and “Firefighting.” Green’s theories regarding writing are expressed in Pack My Bag and in his essays “The English Novel of the Future” and “A Novelist to His Readers,” which can be found in Contact (1950) and The Listener (1950, 1951). From time to time, Green wrote book reviews on topics that interested him and personal essays ranging in subject from his friend and editor Edward Garnett to public school life in 1914.
