From the Publisher
First published in 1957, The World Regained describes Dennis McEldowney's increasing disability caused by a congenital heart condition, the operation at Green Lane Hospital in 1950 that relieved this condition, and the mixed emotions he felt upon rediscovering the outside world. In 1958 the book won the Hubert Church Memorial Prize, the only award then given for prose. This re-issue features a new introduction and illustrations.
