Christopher Morley
American journalist, novelist, essayist and poet. Author of more than 100 novels, books of essays, and volumes of poetry, Morley is probably best known for his 1939 novel Kitty Foyle, which was made into an Academy Award-winning movie. Another well-known work is Thunder on the Left (1925). Out of enthusiasm for the Sherlock Holmes stories, he helped found the Baker Street Irregulars. — Excerpted from Christopher Morley on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
