Gilbert Frankau

Author Code: EGFR

Born: Apr. 21, 1884 - London, England

Died: Nov. 4, 1952 - London, England

Educated at Eton College, Frankau entered the family cigar business after leaving school. Although born into a Jewish family, he was baptised as an Anglican in 1897. At the outbreak of the First World War, Frankau joined the army and was commissioned into the 9th Battalion, East Surrey Regiment. He served at Loos, Ypres and the Somme where he became shell-shocked and which led to his eventual release from the army. During the war years Frankau was a regular contributor to the Wipers Times, a hugely popular trench journal, and he also produced a large quantity of war poetry including The Guns (1916), The City of Fear (1917) and The Judgment of Valhalla (1918). The family business did not survive the war and Frankau turned to writing as a career. In 1919, he published Peter Jackson, Cigar Merchant, which became a best-seller. Some of his later works were adapted as films including Christopher Strong in 1933. His other works include Eton Echoes (1901), The XYZ of Bridge (1906), One of Them (1918), The Seeds of Enchantment (1921), Men, Maids and Mustard Pot (1923), Gerald Cranston's Lady (1924), My Unsentimental Journey (1926), Wine, Women and Waiters (1932), Experiments in Crime and Other Stories (1937), World Without End (1942), Michael's Wife (1948) and Unborn Tomorrow (1953 posthumous).
