About M. S. Simpson

See more books from this Author
M. S. Simpson was born in Southern California, a fifth-generation Californian, and grew up in "A Disneyland existence, with dogs, cats, guinea pigs, loving parents and a veritable forest of jacaranda trees." At university in England, he cultivated a love for French culture, and now divides his time between France and the U.S. For some years he taught at prestigious independent schools. His first book, "Kabuki in a G-String," won global acclaim, with notable attention paid to it in France and Australia. A former Fellow of the Library of Congress, with a Ph.D. with distinction in Comparative Literature, he understands literature and its power to change lives. He loves to quote Virginia Woolf, and particularly cherishes her remark that, "If you cannot tell the truth about yourself, you cannot tell it about others." As a writer, M. S. Simpson aims to be a truth-teller in the Virginia Woolf tradition.
