About the Author:

Leon Garfield (1921-96) is considered one of the most innovative writers of historical fiction, and his work has entertained generations of readers.

From Publishers Weekly:

Two Leon Garfield novels are now available in hardcover and paperback editions. In The Strange Affair of Adelaide Harris (1971), the author describes, with wit and droll humor, two 18th-century schoolboys' experiment to see if a wolf will adopt and nourish a baby; originally published in the U.S. as Footsteps (1980), John Diamond relates the tale of young William Jones, who desperately seeks John Diamond, the son of a man wronged by William's father.
