    After Leaving Mr. Mackenzie.

    Reissue in the attractively designed dust jacket. After Leaving Mr. Mackenzie was originally published in 1931, appearing before Rhys slipped into obscurity and poverty. In 1945 the actress Selma Vaz Dias adapted another of the author's novels into a BBC programme, and advertised for Rhys to contact her to give permission for it to be broadcast. This contact, and further efforts by Vaz Dias and others in the publishing field, led to the Rhys's re-emergence into the literary community, the republication of her books which had fallen out of print, and the eventual publication of her masterpiece Wide Sargasso Sea.
