Hilton, James: Murder At School. V1. 8 Sep 2012
Hilton wrote his two most famous books, Lost Horizon and Goodbye, Mr Chips while living in a rather ordinary Semi-detached house on Oak Hill Gardens, Woodford Green. The house still stands, with a blue plaque marking Hilton's residence.
He was married and divorced twice, first to Alice Brown and later to Galina Kopineck. He died in Long Beach, California from liver cancer on December 20, 1954, aged 54.
Pilate might well have added: "What is youth?"—And so the modern father too may wonder, Faintly remembering his own, forsooth, But feeling it would be an awful blunder To tell his sons a tenth part of the truth About the sex-temptations HE came under. Therefore, in England now, on every hand, This proper study of mankind is banned.
