About the Author
David Henry Wilson (1937-) was born in London, and educated at Dulwich College and Pembroke College, Cambridge. He taught in France and Ghana before becoming a university lecturer in Germany, first in Cologne, then in Constance - where he founded the university theatre - and later in Bristol (England). His theatre plays have been widely produced in Britain and other countries, and his children's books (especially the Jeremy James series) have been translated into many languages. His translation work from French and German ranges from children's fiction through art and culture to literary theory and other academic fields. He is married and lives in Taunton, England, where to his wife's dismay he still plays cricket. They have three grown-up children but only one grandchild. They would like more grandchildren.
