Book Description:

Savrola is Winston Churchill’s first major literary effort and his only full-length work of fiction. 
     Published in 1900, the novel’s subtitle, Savrola contains the seeds of Churchill’s exceptional talents as a statesman, a political philosopher, and a man of literature. The ambition of Savrola to rule foreshadows Churchill’s own career as the greatest democratic leader of the past
century. He sketches a model of the education needed for modern statesmanship and describes the kind of rhetoric that appeals to a modern democratic people, all in a style that anticipates his later Nobel Prize for Literature.
   This edition of Savrola contains extensive introductory materials, notes, an appendix, and is lavishly illustrated with reproductions of the André Collot woodcuts made for a limited French edition.

Winston S. Churchill (1874-1965) has been called by historians "the man of the twentieth century." Prime Minister of Great Britain (1940-1945), Churchill won the Nobel prize for literature in 1953.
