Nevil Shute

a.k.a. Nevil Shute Norway

Author Code: ENSN

Born: Jan. 17, 1899 - London, England

Died: Jan. 12, 1960 - Melbourne, Australia

Educated at Balliol College, Oxford and the Royal Military Academy at Woolwich, Shute suffered from a stammer that precluded his being commissioned in the Royal Flying Corps. Instead, he joined the Suffolk Regiment. Following the war, he began an engineering career, first with de Havilland and subsequently with Vickers Ltd, where he later worked under the famous Sir Barnes Wallis. Shute's writing career was parallel to his engineering and many of his works had aircraft and aviation as a backdrop. In 1931, he left Vickers to form his own company, Airspeed Ltd. which had a good deal of success during the 1930's. During World War II, Shute joined the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve with the rank of sub-lieutenant, later working on weapons development. His reputation as a writer was already well-established by this time and he was asked to report on the D-Day landings at Normandy. He subsequently went to Burma as a war correspondent and finished the war as a Lieutenant Commander. In 1950, he moved to Australia and began a phenomenal ten-year period of productivity, turning out a number of best-sellers including A Town Like Alice (1950),The Far Country (1952) and On the Beach (1957). Shute's works are always written in an easily readable style that appealed to all classes of readers. Unfortunately, his work has lost its popularity more recently. His other works include Lonely Road (1932), Ruined City (1938), Pied Piper (1942), Most Secret (1945), No Highway (1948), Round the Bend (1951), In the Wet (1953), Beyond the Black Stump (1956) and The Rainbow and the Rose (1958).
