Ford Madox Ford was an English author and editor; both his work and personal life were characterized by controversy, excess, and exaggeration. Born into an artistic family, he grew up cultured and accomplished. He was inspired to become a writer by his grandfather, artist Ford Madox Brown, who illustrated his first book. His early collaboration with Joseph Conrad helped each develop as a writer, and Ford went on to write novels, short stories, travel literature, and criticism.
