Book Details

Title:Head in Green Bronze
Walpole, Hugh   
(16 of 40 for author by title)
The Inquisitor
Harmer John
Published:   1938
Publisher:Macmillan and Co., Limited
Tags:fiction, short stories

In the Walpole manner, an excellent collection of short stories for the guest-room bedside table, for the convalescent, or for reading aloud. There is nothing of the modern cynicism; the stories seem somewhat dated—but after all that is often restful. One group might stand alone, Let the Bores Tremble, built on an entertaining idea of a business of ridding society of bores. For characteristic flavor, read The German, The Exile, The Train. Not an important addition to the Walpole shelf.

Author Bio for Walpole, Hugh

Author Image

Sir Hugh Seymour Walpole (March 13, 1884 - June 1, 1941) was a British Novelist during the first half of the Twentieth Century. He was one of the most popular authors of his times, until his literary reputation was destroyed by Somerset Maugham.

His most famous novel is perhaps Rogue Herries, the first of four books in his Herries Chronicles series. He wrote thirty-six novels, and five volumes of short stories.
