Edgar Wallace : Sanders of the River

'On the dressing table were three books, my own, "Sanders of the River", Snowden's "Wages and Prices", a relic of my student days, and "The Book of Mormon" which had been given me by a Mormon missionary. I picked up "Sanders" and got back into bed. I didn't read much of it. I could not concentrate, so continued to smoke and gaze around the room.'

Richard Horatio Edgar Wallace : [unknown]

'On the wall at the side of the chimney Dad put up the bookshelves which Dodie began to fill with secondhand penny books. Over the years we had Conrad and Wodehouse, Eric Linklater and Geoffrey Farnol, Edgar Wallace, Jane Austen, Thomas Hardy, Mark Twain, Arnold Bennett, Robert Louis Stevenson, John Buchan, and a host of others, good, bad and awful, and we read the lot, some of them over and over.'
