Company Parade is the story of Hervey Russell, who leaves her little son at the end of the First World War, in order to make a better home for him and to give him the opportunities he deserves. Hervey is alone, her husband in the Air Force still, her baby son in Yorkshire. She doesn't understand why her husband, Penn is in no hurry to demobilise from the Air Force and resume his career as a school teacher. She married writer Guy Chapman, but continued to publish as Storm Jameson. I'm struck by a short paragraph in which Hervey is walking to interview for a job.

Jameson wrote several science fiction novels. Perhaps a nice pretty cover with flowers, or a sad looking woman staring out to sea. It is about those that remain after the fighting has stopped, whether civilians who lost someone or soldiers returning, and how they are adapting to a new world devastated by the War. Jameson's prose is lovely - quiet and individual with arresting turns of phrase which do not interrupt the narrative flow. Wonderful supporting characters are drawn, including the sympathetic portraiture of a Jewish press empire, a rare outlook in British literature. After being taught privately and at Scarborough municipal school she won one of three county scholarships which enabled her to read English Literature at Leeds University.

Best to pretend all that philosophical stuff simply isn't there. Well, that's just wrong, isn't it? Hervey finds steady work as a novice copywriter, mentored by a crippled war vet. The only possible readers of this novel are bored over-educated women. She doesn't understand why her husband, Penn is in no hurry to demobilise from the Air Force and resume his career as a school teacher. She wrote three volumes of autobiography. In some respects the novel is thinly veiled autobiography, shadowing as it does Jameson's early domestic upheaval and forays into literature.

Storm Jameson was always politically active, helping to publish a Marxist journal in the British section of the International Union of Revolutionary Writers in 1934 and attending anti-fascist rallies. She has already written one novel, and knows that she is destined to be famous. She thought of Richard, of her unmanageable desires and her un-abatable ambitions. Hervey is alone, her husband in the Air Force still, her baby son in Yorkshire. It is easy to imagine that you are a success; it is not so easy to imagine that your hat is on straight when it is in fact over one ear. This is the story of Britain between 1918 and 1923, and of Hervey Russell, caught up in the fervor of London with her husband away in the Air Force and her baby left behind in Yorkshire. I mean, come on, Storm Jameson, what a great author name, although it perhaps sounds more like the pseudonym of a romantic novelist than a literary one.
