Reluctant Expatriate: The Life of Harold Frederic

Synopsis

This book is the first full-length biographical and critical study of the American Realist author Harold Frederic (1856-1898). As London correspondent for the New York Times and the author of nine novels, Frederic was internationally known at the time of his death; today he is remembered mainly for his novel The Damnation of Theron Ware (1896). Drawing on archival and published material not available to earlier writers on Frederic, Myers paints a fascinating portrait of the man and his times as an expatriate in London in the 1890s, his friendship with James, Crane, Wells, and their circle, and the scandal surrounding his death at the age of 42.
