Hilton, James: Contango (Ill Wind). 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.
“Curious, the way things do jump out of nothing. This affair seems to have been begun by a hat blowing off.”
