"Unfinished Adventure", published in 1933, is Evelyn Sharp's autobiography. It is a remarkable book recounting a remarkable life. Born in 1869, Evelyn Sharp was the sister of the folk song and dance expert, Cecil Sharp. A journalist, writer, pacifist and suffragist, Evelyn Sharp writes vividly about all aspects of her life: her school-days, Paris in 1890 , the "Yellow Book", the "Manchester Guardian", her conversion to Suffragism, her imprisonment in Holloway, her war work, her relief work in Germany and Russia in the nineteen-twenties, and finally, in her own words, "The Greatest of All Adventures": the day she completed this book she married the campaigning writer and journalist, H. W. Nevinson. A. S. Byatt has described Evelyn Sharp as 'perspicacious, witty and a very good writer'. Evelyn Sharp and her autobiography deserve to be better known. Faber Finds is very pleased to be reissuing "An Unfinished Adventure" at the same time as the Manchester University Press publish Angela John's biography, "Evelyn Sharp: Rebel Woman", 1869-1955.
