Biography

David Lindsay (1878–1945)
David Lindsay was born in London into a middle class family. Although he won a scholarship to university, he was forced by penury to go into business and he became an insurance clerk at Lloyd’s of London. He was very successful but, after serving in the First World War, at the age of forty he moved to Cornwall with his new, young wife to become a full-time writer. He published A Voyage to Arcturus in 1920 but it was not a success, selling fewer than six hundred copies, and thereafter his life was a constant struggle for recognition.
