Author Bio for Tomlinson, H. M. (Henry Major)

Author Image

The author and journalist H. M. (Henry Major) Tomlinson was born on June 21, 1873 in Wanstead, Essex. At the age of twelve, he was already working as a shipping clerk. A voracious reader, he saw writing as a means to escape the drudgery of his job, but it was not until 1904, at the age of 31, that he managed to do so, joining the editorial staff of the Morning Herald. He worked there until 1909 when he took a steamship up the Amazon. The result is what is considered his best travelogue, The Sea and the Jungle. He joined the London Daily News in 1912 and was a war correspondent from 1914-1917. In 1917, he became the literary editor at the Nation and Athenaeum, the leading British Radical weekly, a post which he held until the departure of its editor Henry Massingham and a change in its political direction in 1923. From there, Tomlinson turned to full time writing. His first success as a novelist came in 1927 with the publication of Gallions Reach. Tomlinson’s work has been compared favorably to Joseph Conrad’s, both for their love of the sea and their focus on the psychological perspective of their characters. Tomlinson died on February 5, 1958 in London.
