Product Description

About the Author

Born Cecil William Mercer into a middle class Victorian family with many Victorian skeletons in the closet, including the conviction for embezzlement from a law firm and subsequent suicide of his great-uncle, Yates' parents somehow scraped together enough money to send him to Harrow. The son of a solicitor, he qualified as a barrister whilst still finding timeto contribute stories to the Windsor Magazine. After the first world war hegave up legal work in favour of writing, which had become his great passion, and completed somethirty books. These rangedfrom light- hearted farce to adventure thrillers. For the former, he created the 'Berry' books which established Yates' reputation as a writer of witty, upper-crust romances. For the latter, he created ther character Richard Chandos, who recounts the adventures of Jonah Mansel, a classic gentleman sleuth. As a consequence of his education and experience, Yates' books feature the genteel life, a nostalgic glimpse at Edwardian decadence and a number of swindling solicitors. In his hey day, and as testament to hisfine writing, Dornford Yates' work was placed in the bestseller list. Indeed, 'Berry' is one of the great comic creations of twentieth century fiction; the 'Chandos' titles also beingsuccessfully adapted for television. Along with Sapper and John Buchan, Yates dominated the adventure book market of the inter war years. Finding the English climate utterly unbearable, Yates chose to live in the French Pyrenees for eighteen years, before moving on to Rhodesia where he died in 1960. 'Mr Yates can be recommended to anyone who thinks the British take themselves too seriously.' - Punch 'We appreciate fine writing when we come across it, and a wit that is ageless united to a courtesy that is extinct'-Cyril Connolly

Format:Hardcover
Dornford Yates began his writing career in the early part of the last century with a series of light social comedies, before switching to thrillers/adventure yarns, of which he must have written nearly 20. Most feature either Jonah Mansel or Richard Chandos, and have exotic locations - the South of France or middle Europe - and a cast of equally exotic villains. If you have not read them before, then notwithstanding its place in the middle of the sequence - this book is not a bad place to start. A ripping Yarn.

5.0 out of 5 stars good reading 3 Jun 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Like all of of his books, well written and in the days which will never be seen again. His books contain no gratuitous violence, no pornography only love and romance, no bad language. The Richard Chandos and Jonathan Mansel stories are thrilling escapades involving gentlemen with servants and who drive expensive cars, not everyones cup of tea but I love them.
