Stan Barstow


UK (1928 - 2011)

Stan Barstow, the novelist, playwright and scriptwriter, began writing his first short story in 1951 on honeymoon. It was at the suggestion ofhis wife, Connie, on a rainy afternoon in their Lake District hotel. The story wasn't publishable but he quickly learned the craft of writing and,according to his autobiography, InMy Own Good Time (2001) "began to uncover a talent I certainly couldn't, only a year or two earlier, have known I possessed".
