Richard Hughes

Richard Hughes (1900-1976) published his first novel, A High Wind in Jamaica, in 1926. It became a bestseller in England and America, won the Prix Femina in France, and has since established itself as a modern classic. Hughes's other books include In Hazard, The Fox in the Attic and The Wooden Shepherdess, the first two volumes of an unfinished trilogy, "The Human Predicament," about the rise of German Fascism and the onset of World War II.
