Excerpt from Catherine a Shabby Genteel Story: The Second Funeral of Napoleon; And Miscellanies, 1840 I<br><br>From another point of View the wind was partly tempered to him, partly blowing at its sharpest. To some writers the constant moving about, and the absence of the accus tomed study; books, &c would have been a most serious trial, if not an insurmountable difficulty but Thackeray was not of them. Whether from idiosyncrasy, from a habit acquired in his more Bohemian days, or from some other cause, he seems always to have preferred writing, as an Irishman might say, 'somewhere else.' He would, when there was nothing to induce him to do so but his own fancy, leave home to write at the club, the club to write at Brighton, Brighton to write at Paris. On the other hand, few men were more inﬂuenced by their affections and the positive testimony which he has left as to the writing of the Shabby Genteel Story, which appears in this volume, and the Hoggarty Diamond, which appears in the next, no doubt applies to almost everything from the Shabby Genteel Story itself to The Irish Sketch Book.<br><br>About the Publisher<br><br>Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
