KENNETH GRAHAME:A Biography.(1959).Peter Green.****.
Most of know of Grahame as the author of “The Wind in the Willows.”This was his most famous book, but I discovered in this fine biography that his list of credits was extensive.The second-best piece was “The Reluctant Dragon.”Unfortunately, Mr. Grahame didn’t live to see what the Walt Disney interpretations did for his work, but he managed to become financially independent just on the basis of “The Wind in the Willows,” published in 1908.Grahame led a pretty unspectacular life, and was disappointed early on when his parents refused to send him on to Oxford because of the costs involved.He, instead, took a position with The Bank of England, and worked his way up to that of secretary.His life outside the bank, however, was one of the mind.He had a marvelous imagination and wrote several sets of short stories that sold very well.It was not until he married Elspeth Thomson and they had a son, Alastair, that he came alive.His famous book was based on the stories he made up to tell his son at bedtime.The story of Alastair had a sad ending.The boy was ‘delicate’ and was also born with a hereditary eye disease.He later died by being run down by a train; it looked like suicide.It was at this point that Grahame’s output went down to zero.This is a sensitive biography of a sensitive man who also managed to work alongside of the other famous writers of his day.All of these relationships are followed up in this book.The biography contains an exhaustive bibliography of Grahame’s works and a general bibliography of reference books dealing with the time.Recommended.
