Tressell and the Late Kathleen
A Biographical Memoir and a Message of Hope
by D. V. Haines

In this book, D. V. Haines at long last reveals more about the daughter whose father wrote the famous novel The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists.

It is no mere now-it-can-be-told memoir.

The book is in two parts for good reasons. Part One (Looking behind the Legend) is at times a sad but at other times an entertaining revelation.

In Part Two (Pursuing the Values), Mr Haines suggests how the truth about Tressell and his values can reward our own lives in a practical, down-to-earth way.

As a bonus, Mr Haines gives us a picture of literary life in Hastings at a time when he knew these unusual people. It is a period fast disappearing from public memory, but his highly personal account should be of value to anyone interested in literature and drama.

D. V. Haines is a retired technical writer.
