Meet the Author

Wilkie Collins was born in London in 1824. Collins is best remembered for his novels, particularly The Woman in White (1860) and The Moonstone (1868), which T. S. Eliot called 'the first, the longest, and the best of modern English detective novels'. His later, and at the time rather sensational, novels include The New Magdalen (1873) and The Law and The Lady (1875). Collins died in 1889.

It was a good book that I would save for a rainy day and a blanket.
