Kenneth Grahame

Kenneth Grahame 1859-1932 had an unusual writing career. He became an essayist of some note while working his way up to a senior position at the Bank of England, but ceased writing when he retired, then married in 1899. His classic work, 'The Wind in the Willows', came from bedtime stories he wrote for his young son and was published in 1908. Although he lived for over twenty years after, it was his last published work.
