Description by

He was the author of 173 books, translated into more than 30 languages. More films were made from his books than any other 20th century writer, and in the 1920s a quarter of all books read in England were written by him. Edgar Wallace, the illegitimate son of a traveling actress, rose from poverty in Victorian England to become the most popular author in the world and a global celebrity of his age. He scooped the signing of the Boer War peace treaty when working as a war correspondent, before achieving success as a film director and playwright. At the height of his success, he was earning a vast fortune, but the money went out as fast as it came in. Famous for his thrillers, with their fantastic plots, in many ways Wallace did not write his most exciting story: he lived it.
