Deeping, Warwick: Roper's Row. V1. 24 Apr 2011

George Warwick Deeping (May 28, 1877–April 20, 1950) was a prolific English novelist and short story writer, whose most famous novel was Sorrell and Son (1925). Born in Southend-on-Sea, Essex, into a family of doctors, he was educated at Merchant Taylors' School. He proceeded to Trinity College, Cambridge to study medicine and science, and then to Middlesex Hospital to finish his medical training. During the First World War, he served in the Royal Army Medical Corps. Deeping later gave up his job as a doctor to become a full-time writer. His early work is dominated by historical romances. His later novels can be seen as attempts at keeping alive the spirit of the Edwardian age.

Excerpt
The girl was tempted by the open door. It was unusual for Hazzard to leave his door open. His habit was to shut it quietly and carefully, for like many other doors in Roper's Row it had seen better days, and was suffering from decrepitude, strained hinges and a stammering lock. Hazzard knew the habits of that door. Unless you were firm with it and made sure that the catch had caught, the door would swing slowly back into the room, uttering a little creaking moan. It was a faithless, treasonable door. It was ready to betray you and your secrets, and Hazzard had many reasons for wishing to keep the door closed.
