Page history last edited by Jon 10 years, 11 months ago

Clifford Henry Benn Kitchin (October 17, 1895 - 1967) was a British writer. He was born in Harrogate, Yorkshire, and educated in Bristol and at Oxford, After war service in France he became a barrister and stockbroker, and later inherited a fortune. Kitchin was best known for his mystery novels, notably Death of His Uncle and Death of My Aunt, but his many mainstream novels were also highly regarded.

 

Kitchin led a varied and colourful life. He used his wealth to take part in many different fields, including botany, linguistics, music, chess, and the breeding and racing of greyhounds, in which he was briefly an important figure. He was an avid collector and a gambler both on greyhounds and at roulette.

 

 

A historian of the future will probably turn, not to blue books or statistics, but to detective stories if he wishes to study the manners of our age. -- CHB Kitchin
