More Info

Joyce Cary (1888-1957) read law at Oxford University, worked with the Red Cross the Balkan Wars, and served in Nigeria and Cameroon during World War I. In 1920, Cary moved to Oxford, where he began writing short stories and novels. His first four novels, set in Africa, drew heavily from his experiences in Nigeria. Mister Johnson, published in 1939, is generally regarded as his greatest novel. "Charley Is My Darling" (1940), about displaced young people at the start of World War II, found a wide readership, and "A House of Children" (1941) won the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for best novel. Cary also wrote a trilogy about an artist named Gulley Jimson; (1941), "To Be a Pilgrim" (1942) and "The Horse's Mouth" (1944), and, in the 1950s, a second trilogy: "Prisoner of Grace, Except the Lord, " and "Not Honour More."
