Grey Timothy

This novel is dedicated to one of Wallace’s favourite pastimes, horse racing. It follows the rough neck Australian gambler Brian Pallard as he arrives in England to meet his distant relatives. Over the course of this fast paced novel, Pallard transforms from degenerate gambler to winning the hearts of his relatives in a sympathetic and dynamic tale. The story itself seems to draw significant parallels to Wallace’s own horse racing addiction which landed his family in serious financial difficulty. With this kernel of truth at its core ‘Grey Timothy’ is a brilliant, captivating tale with a brilliant cast of characters and divine plot twists.

Edgar Wallace (1875-1932) was an English writer, poet and journalist. He was such a prolific writer that his publisher claimed his work could account for a quarter of all books sold in England. He wrote countless books, screenplays, poems and historical non-fiction, spawning over one hundred and sixty films based on his work. He unfortunately passed away suddenly before he could see his most famous creation ‘King Kong’ come to life. It has been adapted several times over the years, notably by Peter Jackson of Lord of the Rings fame, and more recently in ‘Godzilla vs Kong’ starring Millie Bobby Brown.
