Benson, E. F: Dodo's Daughter. v1. 6 Jan 2014.
Edward Frederic Benson (24 July 1867 – 29 February 1940) was an English novelist, biographer, memoirist and short story writer, known professionally as E.F. Benson. His friends called him Fred. Edward Frederic Benson was the son of the Archbishop of Canterbury and member of a distinguished and eccentric family. After attending Marlborough and King's College, Cambridge where he studied classics and archaeology, he worked at the British School of Archaeology in Athens. One of our greatest humorists, he achieved great success at an early age with his first novel, Dodo (1893). He was a prolific author writing over a hundred books: serious novels, ghost stories, plays and biographies. But he is best remembered for his Lucia comedies written between 1920 and 1939 and other comic novels such as Paying Guests and Mrs Ames. He became mayor of Rye, the Sussex town that provided the model for his fictional Tilling, from 1934 to 1937.
" 'Dodo's daughter' is a kind of glorified nonsense, but has the Juice of life in it, and it has the power of making you feel entirely content as you read. One would like a new Dodo every year. Lacking that, this new Dodo will probably be read and reread as often as was the earlier volume. The lovers of Dodo may be a selected class, but they are not inconsiderable in number, and they will grow in bulk considerably during the ensuing months." Hildegarde Hawthorne...New York Times, March 14, 1914
