Tagged: Author

(1900-1962) UK translator and author whose early work, like The Honest Bounder (1927), grappled with interbellum Europe from a left perspective; in his sf novel, Angelo's Moon (1955), set in an Underground city in Africa called Hypolitania, a white scientist offers some hope of countering the degeneration of our species.
