A story that deserves to be included among the classics of English literature. Rebecca West is the pseudonym of Cicely Isabel Fairfield (1893-1983), a native of London, who was among the militant suffragettes of the time, with a successful career in journalism. This Real Night continues the saga of the Aubrey family, as the third title of a trilogy. Rose, the reporter of all the events, is the daughter of Clarence, who was abandoned by her husband Piers, and who lives devoted to the care of her four children - Richard, Cordelia, Rose and Mary, the latter two twins - and a niece, Rosamund, who will study to become a nurse. The family is a model of delicacy and peaceful coexistence: they love each other, help each other, cultivate music, and get through their poverty with dignity at a middle-class level. The reactions of everyone in this house are always a model of Christian sense, without silliness, and the good humor knows how to take advantage of the daily contradictions. This story is interrupted when Richard Quin is called up in 1914, and Clarence falls ill with exhaustion.
