Review:
'He is in the great tradition of Lear and Carroll and Gilbert and Belloc. At his best he easily ranks any of these.' - Jeremy Nicholas, The Ruthless Rhymer, BBC Radio 4
About the Author:
Harry Graham (1874-1936) was an establishment figure who didn't quite fit the mould. He started off conventionally enough with Eton, Sandhurst and the Coldstream Guards, but the irrepressible entertainer in him kept bursting out, and by 1910 he had become a full-time writer. He was engaged to the American actress Ethel Barrymore, great aunt of Drew Barrymore, but she added him to her list of spurned suitors, among them Winston Churchill. Four years later Graham married Dorothy Villiers. They had one daughter, Virginia, also a writer, whose correspondence with Joyce Grenfell was published in 2000.
