Many personal details of the author, previously unknown, have been revealed. Bramah's political philosophy as well as the literary gestation and parturition of his major fictional characters, most particularly Kai Lung and Max Carrados are traced. Contemporary and later criticisms of his work are re-examined and there are extensive quotations to illustrate the unique and never-to-be-copied style of writing.
Aubrey Wilson gives an incisive and lively account of this best-selling author whose life was totally hidden from his wide and enthusiastic public.
