About the Author

Andre Maurois

Maurois was born at Elbeuf as the son of a textile manufacturer. His family had fled Alsace after the Franco-Prussian War (1870) and took refuge in Normandy, where they owned a woolen mill at Elbeuf. Maurois was a brilliant student. He studied at the lycée of Elbeuf and Rouen, received barchelor's degree in letters and science and continued for a degree in philosophy at the University of Caen. From the age of eighteen to twenty-six he worked at his father's factory. When the World War I broke out, Maurois was first attached as an interpreter, then as a liaison officer to the British Army.

As a novelist Maurois made his debut with The Silence of Colonel Bramble (1918), which was based on his experiences in the war.

Publisher Profile

Jane Nissen Books is an imprint of Jane Nissen Books

logo Upon retirement from Penguin in 2001, and with the belief that children of the 21st Century should have access to some of the best-loved books of the 20th Century, many of which have gone out of print over the years, Jane Nissen set up her own publishing company with the sole purpose of bringing lost children's classics back into print. In 2007, Jane was granted the Eleanor Farjeon Award for distinguished service to the world of British children's books.
