Person Male Born 17/3/1904 Died 23/9/1962
Novelist and playwright. Born Anthony Walter Patrick Hamilton at Dale House, Hassocks, Sussex. He suffered multiple injuries when hit by a drunken driver in 1932. This may well have had a bearing on the bleak nature of a lot of his work. His best known novels are 'Rope' and 'Hangover Square'. His stage play 'Gaslight' was filmed by Alfred Hitchcock, as was 'Rope'. Died at his home, 3 Martincross, North Street, Sheringham, Norfolk. The Guardian have a good piece about him.
