About the Author:

THOMAS PINNEY is William M. Keck Distinguished Service Professor of English, emeritus, at Pomona College, California, and former chair of the department. In addition to editing volumes 1, 2, 3 and 4 of Kipling's letters, he is editor of the Essays of George Eliot and the Letters of Thomas Babington Macaulay, and the author of A History of Wine in America.


From reviews of the previous volumes:

Volumes 1 & 2

'Thomas Pinney's editing is informative, concise, always relevant.' - Peter Keating, Financial Times

'...these letters will be of interest to all those fascinated by Kipling's development as both a writer and a cultural critic.' - New York Review of Books

'...the whole correspondence... is as compulsive to read any of [Kipling's] stories.' - John Bayley, Times Literary Supplement

Volume 3

'As in the previous two volumes, Pinney's editing of volume three of the letters is meticulous and lucidly succinct.' - Sandra Kemp, Times Higher Education Supplement

'This is a perfect bedside book and an important contribution to Kipling scholarship.' - Ian McIntyre, The Times

'Kipling is well served by his editor, Thomas Pinney. Pinney is discreet, methodical and judicious. His notes are brief and to the point, his selection of letters is wide-ranging and presented to form a coherent narrative.' - Miranda Seymour, Times Literary Supplement

Volume 4

'...the latest volume of his magnificent (and magnificently edited) letters... Kipling the letter-writer is a fairly irresistible force.' - Jeremy Lewis, The Observer

'...Thomas Pinney's magnificent ongoing edition of The Letters of Rudyard Kipling...' - Mick Imlah, The Guardian

Reviews for this volume:

'Thomas Pinney himself points out that there will never be a complete edition of Kipling's letters...This seems to me, however, to be a admirable collection, well selected, clearly set out and with illuminating and informative footnotes which must themselves have demanded a formidable effort of research.' - Juliet Townsend, Spectator
