The BookShelf Review - Julius Falconer Series
The Author: Julius Falconer, scion of an ancient (but unfortunately modest) York family, went to school in Leicestershire, studied for five years in Italy and finally, after working as a translator, qualified as a teacher in Leeds. He then taught Religious Education and philosophy at schools in Cornwall and Perthshire. Now that he is retired and able to divide his time between Yorkshire and rural France, his hobbies include walking, gardening, music and reading. His black-eyed Irish wife sadly died many years ago – the greatest loss of his life - leaving him at the mercy of his married daughter. His greatest moment was when he was introduced to a guest at a party, some years ago, and was greeted by the astonished question, ‘What, not the Julius Falconer?’.
