Patrick Hamilton, author of "Rope" and "Gaslight", had a life full of strange contradictions. He came from a family of powerful literary failures, and yet he made his name internationally while in his mid-20s. He became a committed Marxist but married - twice - into the aristocracy and although his family was wealthy, he was drawn to the poor and genteel.
