Alington, Adrian

Tagged: Author

(1895-1958) UK author of Sanity Island (1941) which, set on an Island not unlike Britain, is a comic Satire on political extremism and the farcical aspects of re-armament – the targets are mainly of the left. Alington's last novel, Excellency (1951), set on a fictitious Mediterranean island, repeats good-humouredly but not fantastically some of the effects of the earlier book; it was filmed as Excellency (1952).
