V. S. Pritchett

a.k.a. Sir Victor Sawdon Pritchett

Author Code: EVSP

Born: Dec. 16, 1900 - Ipswich, England

Died: Mar. 20, 1997 - London, England

Educated at various schools, including St. John's School, Alleyn's School and Dulwich College, primarily due to his father's constant moves, Pritchett finally left school at the beginning of the First World War. From 1916 to 1920, he worked as a leather buyer and then worked in Paris for three years as a shop assistant. In 1923, he became a correspondent for The Christian Science Monitor and worked for them in Ireland and Spain before moving on to the New Statesman, eventually becoming its literary editor. In 1928, he published Marching Spain, a travel work that was reasonably received. He firmly established his literary credentials with the publication of The Spanish Virgin and Other Stories in 1932. During the Second World War, he continued writing a weekly column for the New Statesman while taking on roles within the BBC and the Ministry of Information. Pritchett received many awards including a CBE, the Heinemann Award, the W.H. Smith Literary Award and a knighthood in 1975. He continued to write up to his death following a stroke at the age of 96. His other works include Clare Drummer (1929), Nothing Like Leather (1935), Dead Man Leading (1937), It May Never Happen (1945), The Spanish Temper (1954), Collected Stories (1956), The Key to My Heart (1963), A Cab at the Door (1968), Midnight Oil (1971), Balzac (1973), The Tale Bearers (1980), Chekhov (1988), Lasting Impression (1990) and The Pritchett Century (1997).
