Writer and naturalist Jocelyn Brooke (1908-1966) was born and raised in Kent. He published his first book, Six Poems, in 1928 while still at Worcester College, Oxford. Having worked in London bookshops and publishing, he enlisted in the Royal Medical Army corps at the outbreak of War and was later decorated for his bravery. After the war he wrote full time in a variety of genres, culminating in the three novels - The Military Orchid, A Mine of Serpents and The Goose Cathedral - which drew closely on his own experiences. They were first published together in a single volume by Secker and Warburg in 1979, with an introduction by Anthony Powell.
