Stanley Middleton

Uit Wikipedia, de vrije encyclopedie

Stanley Middleton ( Bulwell, 1 augustus 1919 - 25 juli 2009) was een Engels romanschrijver.

Middleton ging naar de universiteit van Nottingham en begon er met schrijven. In 1958 werd zijn eerste boek, A Short Answer gepubliceerd. Middleton onderwees vele jaren Engels aan een middelbare school en was een vruchtbaar schrijver. Met zijn roman Holiday uit 1974 won hij de Booker Prize. Zijn 44e roman, Her Three Wise Men, verscheen in 2008.

Middleton was ook een geoefend organist en een begaafd aquarelschilder. Zo werkte hij bij de heruitgave van Holiday (1974) in 2006 mee aan de illustraties.

Een reporter van de The Sunday Times zond in 2006 als journalistieke stunt de eerste hoofdstukken van Holiday naar een aantal uitgevers en literaire agenten, maar allen weigerden het werk.
