A Brief Biography
A non fiction book by

Best known for his Jungle Books and his Just So Stories, Rudyard Kipling was a complex and fascinating writer. Born in Bombay, sent to the England of his parents at the age of five and left for years in the hands of a sadistic housekeeper, educated in an English school and later, as a cub reporter, in the vastness of India, Kipling is one of the most sympathetic and wisest observers of the lives of outsiders. This short biography intends to introduce new readers to this extraordinary writer. It is engaging, authoritative, and full of fascinating pictures of Kipling's times and his amazing world.
