Person Male Born 10/9/1903 Died 26/11/1974
Literary critic and writer. Born Coventry and was brought up in South Africa and Ireland as well as England. Educated, with George Orwell and Cecil Beaton, at a school in Eastbourne. Edited Horizon. Married three times. Disappointed himself and others by not producing a masterpiece. His well-known quote "There is no more sombre enemy of good art than the pram in the hall" sounds like an excuse to us. Died at a clinic in Ladbroke Terrace.
