Kai Lung's Golden Hours Cover Image

About the Author: Ernest Bramah

Bramah was a reclusive soul, who shared few details of his private life with his reading public. His full name was Ernest Bramah Smith. It is known that he dropped out of Manchester Grammar School at the age of 16, after displaying poor aptitude as a student and thereafter went into farming, and began writing vignettes for the local newspaper. Bramah's father was a wealthy man who rose from factory hand to a very wealthy man in a short time, and who supported his son in his various career attempts.

Bramah went to Fleet Street after the farming failure and became a secretary to Jerome K. Jerome, rising to a position as editor of one of Jerome's magazines. At some point, he appears to have married Mattie.

More importantly, after being rejected by 8 publishers, the Wallet of Kai Lung was published in 1900, and to date, remains in print. Bramah wrote in different areas, including political science fiction, and mystery. He passed away at the age of 74. See http://www.ernestbramah.com for more information.

Kai Lung is brought before the court of the Mandarin Shan Tien after his confidential agent Ming-shu accuses him of treason. In an attempt to delay his judgment and ultimately his execution, Kai Lung retells a string of uncanny tales to the Mandarin. He is successful in postponing his sentencing again and again, until finally he is set free, gaining the admiration and hand of the maiden Hwa-Mei in the process. As with the other Kai Lung novels, Kai Lung's Golden Hours is a rich, aphoristic tale masterfully constructed by Ernest Bramah Smith. Sure to appeal to any discerning reader, this text constitutes veritable must-read for fans of Smith's work. Ernest Bramah (1868 1942) was an English author whose notable works include: Kai Lung Unrolls His Mat (1928) and The Secret of the League (1907). Originally published in 1922, this book is being republished now complete with a new prefatory biography of the author."
