More About the Author

A.A. Milne grew up in a school - his parents ran Henley House in Kilburn, for young boys - but never intended to be a children's writer. Pooh he saw as a pleasant sideline to his main career as a playwright and regular scribe for the satirical literary magazine, Punch.

Writing was very much the dominant feature of A.A. (Alan Alexander)'s life. He joined the staff of Punch in 1906, and became Assistant Editor. In the course of two decades he fought in the First World War, wrote some 18 plays and three novels, and fathered a son, Christopher Robin Milne, in 1920 (although he described the baby as being more his wife's work than his own!).
Observations of little Christopher led Milne to produce a book of children's poetry, When We Were Very Young, in 1924, and in 1926 the seminal Winnie-the-Pooh. More poems followed in Now We Are Six (1927) and Pooh returned in The House at Pooh Corner (1928). After that, in spite of enthusiastic demand, Milne declined to write any more children's stories as he felt that, with his son growing up, they would now only be copies based on a memory.

I adored this book, and it left me wondering what might have happened if Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends hadn't been such an enormous success. Not that I would wish that to be the case, but Mr Milne might have had the time to have written more novels aimed at slightly older people. It is a witty and very wise insight into the rambling thoughts of the central character, and most particularly concerning his relationship with his wife. There are beautiful descriptions of the home and garden that he loves, and although there is a certain serenity to the passages that solely involve the two main characters, there are plenty of other interesting individuals sprinkled throughout the plot. I certainly plan to read it again.

Heard this book reviewed on Radio4 and found it delightful; put me in mind of F Scott Fitzgerald crossed with Evelyn Waugh. If you enjoy novels by these authors I think you will enjoy this. Thought provoking and sets the scene in pre-war Britain when things were just about to change for good,. I imagine it has shades of A A Milne's lifestyle in a time when people called on others of their class and left a calling card and took trains to London just to have a haircut.

Without wishing to spoil the tale the characters develop over the book and the end is probably not what you are expecting.

There are many amusing scenes and characters who just would not exist this century. Some characters such as the publisher have not changed at all! Plus ca change in business.

I heard Vanessa Feltz recommend this on Radio 4. And she wasn't wrong! I laughed out loud several times, but it's also a very touching and wry portrait of a marriage, perceptively written.

Two People 30 Mar. 2008
By Arale - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Little known but utterly charming book. Incredibly funny, touching and surprising story of a couple, and how their everyday life, routine and roles change as the husband's novel becomes an astonishing literary success.
Mind that it's a novel for adults and has nothing to do with Winnie the Pooh!

Great book, poor publishing 15 Feb. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a review of the publisher, not the book or story itself. This book arrived missing the first 9 pages of the story. The book was brand new and cost over $25. It was a Christmas present for my daughter, who loves A.A. Milne. However, she had to do a ton of internet research and find a "sample" of the book online in order to read the first nine pages. She's going to print them out and clip them into the book, but frankly, for $25, I think the publisher could have made the effort to make it a COMPLETE BOOK! It's getting two stars ONLY because she loves the story. Otherwise, I'd give it negative stars.
