This copy of "The Fatal Englishman: Three Short Lives" has been SIGNED by Sebastian Faulks on the title page! An ambitious triple biography on Christopher Wood, Richard Hillary and Jeremy Wolfenden, all three blessed with extraordinary gifts. Wood, a beautiful young Englishman, set out for Paris at the age of nineteen determined to become the greatest painter the world had ever seen; Hillary, confident, handsome, and argumentative, flew Spitfires in the Battle of Britain, Wolfenden was charming, witty and generous, by common consent the cleverest young man of his generation. Though all three were from different eras, they shared a common end; death at brutally young ages surrounded by mystery and incomprehension. Sebastian Faulks has brought to this ambitious triple biography all the compassion and narrative power that characterized "Birdsong."
