About the Author:

The author Robert Standish was a pseudonym of Digby George Gerahty (1898-1981), who wrote under the pen-names of Robert Standish and Stephen Lister. He was an English novelist and short story writer most productive during the 1940s and 1950s. He was also a featured contributor to the Saturday Evening Post. His novels include Elephant Walk, which was later made into a film starring Elizabeth Taylor. In the semi-autobiographical Marise (1950), Gerahty (writing as "Stephen Lister") claimed that he and two publicist colleagues had covertly "invented" the Loch Ness Monster in 1933 as part of a contract to improve business for local hotels. He repeated his claim to researcher Henry Bauer in 1980. He wrote 37 books. His written works include "By the waters of Babylon", "Notes on aid management, agriculture and rural development", "Sun and heir", "More fit for a bishop", "Budgets and plans", "Savoy grill at one!", "Eight Oaks", "Peace comes to Sainte Monique", "Tycoon in Eden", "Broom", "The empty valley", "Consider the lilies", "Sainte Monique unlimited", "Improving the allocation and management of public spending", "The dog that never was", "The abominable goat", "Hungarian roulette", "Becky", "A smell of brimstone". The dust jacket on Elephant Walk says he “has been a tea planter in Ceylon; a rubber planter in Malaya; a boundary rider on an Australian sheep station; a coal trimmer at sea; a journalist in Japan, China, Java, Siberia, and North Africa. He has also lived in France and in the West Indies.” This seems to be an exaggeration or a novelist's fantasy as it would be difficult to do all these things while writing 37 books at the same time.
