Deeping, Warwick: The Road. V1. 26 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.
"Yes, I'm thinking of retiring. Remember the Ten Commandments? Fact is, you know, Mrs. B., you and I ought to have settled down together. I could have turned my old bus into a trade van, and fetched your eggs and your bread and your groceries. But then, after all, I've only been a little old pirate on wheels, and pirates are out of date. You've got to be G.P.O. or L.G.O., or something. But don't forget I've made you the offer."
