About the Author:

Willy Goldman was born in 1910 in Stepney, East London to a recently-arrived Russian-Romanian Jewish family. He was the second of eight children from two marriages for his father, who insisted that he leave school at 14 to begin work in a tailoring sweatshop. He continued to educate himself in Whitechapel library and took to writing short fiction in the early 1930s, enjoying early support from the Left Review and New Writing. He continued to write until the 1950s, when he moved to rural Somerset. He married three times and died in April 2009.
