Editorial Review:

Product Description:
The Viper of Milan by Marjorie Bowen, 1906.


Marjorie Bowen (1885 - 1952) was a British author who wrote historical romances, supernatural horror stories, popular history and biography.
Bowen had a difficult childhood; her alcoholic father left the family at an early age and was eventually found dead on a London street. She and her sister grew up in poverty with a less than affectionate mother.
Her first novel, the violent historical The Viper of Milan (written when she was 16) was rejected by several publishers, who considered it inappropriate for a young woman to have written such a novel. It went on to become a best-seller when eventually published. After this, Bowen's prolific writings were the chief financial support for her family.
In 1938, Bowen was one of the signatories to a petition organised by the National Peace Council, calling for an international peace conference in an effort to avert war in Europe.
