André Maurois was a prolific French author who wrote in a variety of forms and genres. Born as Emile Salomon Wilhelm Herzog, he was educated in Rouen, but delayed his boyhood dream of becoming an author to work for the family textile business. He fought in World War I, where his exposure to British customs inspired his first novel, The Silence of Colonel Bramble, published under the pen name André Maurois. He continued to produce novels, but also wrote history, social commentary, plays, short stories, criticism, memoirs, and biography. Known as a dedicated writer with a witty, lucid style and insatiable curiosity, he also had a long and influential career as an educator. He officially changed his name to André Maurois in 1947.
