Meet the Author

Ford Madox Ford was an influential editor, essayist, critic, poet, and novelist. The author of more than 80 books, including The Fifth Queen, The Good Soldier, It Was the Nightingale, and Provence, he not only collaborated with Joseph Conrad, but also befriended many of the best writers of his time: Henry James, H. G. Wells, Stephen Crane, and Thomas Hardy. Ford also founded the English Review—discovering D. H. Lawrence, Wyndham Lewis, and Ezra Pound—and the transatlantic review in Paris, taking on Ernest Hemingway as a copy editor and publishing the works of James Joyce and Gertrude Stein. Sara Haslam is a lecturer in English at Open University and a founding member and chair of the Ford Madox Ford Society.
