Adams, Richard George

Richard Adams
was born on: 
Sun, 09/05/1920
Newbury, Berkshire, UK
and died on: 
Tue, 27/12/2016
Whitchurch, Hampshire, England.

One of England's great authors.


Richard Adams wrote more than 20 books, most of which failed to achieve significant literary acclaim or large sales. But one book brought him fame and fortune : the multi-layered Watership Down. It is a simple story, it is a complex parable and it's a combination of horror story and bedtime tale.

If that had been his only work, he would be worthy of a place in English literary history.
