Kenneth Grahame

出生: 08/03/1859 逝世: 06/07/1932 性别: Male 类型: Children's literature 职业: Author

The writer Kenneth Grahame led a surprising double life – high-ranking employee of the Bank of England by day, author of children’s tales by night. His most famous book, The Wind in the Willows, inspired by bedtime stories he told to his young son Alastair, was only published when he was 49, and it nearly didn’t find a publisher at all. Once the book was out and had become a global success, Grahame wrote very little else of note, and died a sad and frustrated man, deeply affected by Alastair’s apparent suicide at the age of 19.
