Biographical Note

Louis Golding was one of the most successful Anglo-Jewish authors of post-World War I England. He was born in Manchester of Jewish parents who had recently emigrated from Cherkassy, in the Ukrainian Soviet Union. After graduating from Manchester Grammar School, Golding won a scholarship to Queen's College, Oxford. His education was interrupted by World War I, but he later returned to college and began writing. He is probably best known for his novels, Magnolia Street (1932) and the five-volume series Tales of the Silver Sisters, also know as the Doomington Saga, novels that examine twentieth-century Jewish life in Western Europe. Golding's nonfiction works include The Jewish Problem (1938), Hitler Through the Ages (1939), travel books, and a study of James Joyce. Although Golding never produced an autobiography, he wrote about his own life in his commentary on current events The World I Knew (1940).
