Garnett, David


Born Mar. 9, 1892, in Brighton. English author. Son of the critic E. Garnett and the translator C. Garnett.

Garnett’s first novellas, Lady Into Fox (1923; Russian translation, 1924) and A Man in the Zoo (1924; Russian translation, 1925), combine fantasy and a satirical portrayal of bourgeois reality. In the novel The Sailor’s Return (1925; Russian translation, 1926; another Russian translation, 1927, was entitled Black Wife), race prejudice is exposed. In the novels No Love (1929), The Grasshoppers Come (1931), A Rabbit in the Air (1932), and War in the Air (1941), social themes are more muted. He has written an autobiographical trilogy, The Golden Echo (vols. 1-3, 1953-62).
