Description:

It's all there ever will be of Barrie's autobiography, and it consists of somewhat random sketches, essays, articles contributed over a period of years to periodicals, and followed in each instance by a running commentary on the background of the piece, on current happenings, and so on. One pieces the bits together and gets an impression -- somewhat sketchy and hazy -- of a personality, with a few actual facts about the stress and strain of his early attempts at authorship, and the gradual expanding of his powers and market and interests and associates. For characteristic flavor read chapter V (Love Me Never or Forever), chapter XV (The Biographer at Bay), chapter XXII (The Club Ghost) - Kirkus Review. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Barrie, James Matthew

Author Image

Sir James Matthew Barrie, 1st Baronet, OM (9 May 1860—19 June 1937) was a Scottish novelist and playwright, best remembered today as the creator of Peter Pan. He was born and educated in Scotland but moved to London, where he wrote a number of successful novels and plays. There he met the Llewelyn Davies boys, who inspired him to write about a baby boy who has magical adventures in Kensington Gardens (included in The Little White Bird), then to write Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up, a "fairy play" about an ageless boy and an ordinary girl named Wendy who have adventures in the fantasy setting of Neverland.

Although he continued to write successfully, Peter Pan overshadowed his other work, and is credited with popularising the name Wendy. Barrie unofficially adopted the Davies boys following the deaths of their parents. Barrie was made a baronet by George V on 14 June 1913, and a member of the Order of Merit in the 1922 New Year Honours. Before his death, he gave the rights to the Peter Pan works to Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in London, which continues to benefit from them.--Wikipedia.
