About the Author:
Ruth Derham is an independent scholar and this, her first book, the fulfilment of a long ambition to write. After a career in business and higher education, she now dedicates herself full-time to writing. Her introduction to Frank Russell came quite by chance through her love of literature, and her fascination with his story has led to the publication of several articles in Russell and the journal of the Santayana Society, Overheard in Seville. She is currently co-editing a complete edition of Lionel Johnson’s Winchester Letters, compiling a volume of Frank’s major writings and speeches, and researching the history of the Victorian divorce court for a forthcoming work on its intrigues in the decadent era.
