Green cover shows sunfading. Author signed on end paper. Sir Hugh Seymour Walpole, Sir Hugh Seymour Walpole (13 March 1884 - 1 June 1941) was a New Zealand-born English novelist. He was the son of an Anglican clergyman, intended for a career in the church but drawn instead to writing. His skill at scene-setting, vivid plots, and high profile as a lecturer brought him a large readership in the United Kingdom and North America. He was a best-selling author in the 1920s and 1930s, but has been largely neglected since his death. After his first novel, The Wooden Horse, in 1909, he wrote prolifically, producing at least one book every year. He was a spontaneous story-teller, writing quickly to get all his ideas on paper, seldom revising. His first novel to achieve real success was his third, Mr Perrin and Mr Traill, a tragicomic story of a fatal clash between two schoolmasters. During the First World War he served in the Red Cross on the Russian-Austrian front, and worked in British propaganda in Petrograd and London. In the 1920s and 1930s he was much in demand not only as a novelist but also as a lecturer on literature, making four exceptionally well-paid tours of North America. As a gay man at a time when homosexual practices were illegal in Britain, he conducted a succession of intense but discreet relationships with other men.; 8 X 5.60 X 1.50 inches; 355 pages; Signed by Author
