One of my favourite Persephone books - in fact, one of my favourite books ever - is Marghanita Laski's Little Boy Lost.
I've never seen the 1952 film with Bing Crosby but look what I found on YouTube.
It sounds better in French.
But it's easy to see why Laski hated the film.
Violets and violins, indeed!

Some times think everything sounds better in French! Like you, one of my all time favourites.
