Kevin McAleer was born in Santa Monica, California, received his doctorate in history from UC San Diego, and presently lives as a writer and translator in Berlin. His stories have appeared in German and American periodicals, he is author notably of the novels SURFERBOY and BERLIN TANGO as well as co-editor of the two-volume work EVERYMAN IN EUROPE: ESSAYS IN SOCIAL HISTORY and author of DUELING: THE CULT OF HONOR IN FIN-DE-SI CLE GERMANY which was chosen by the Encylopaedia Britannica as one of its "Books of the Year." In his ERROL FLYNN: AN EPIC LIFE the author now brings the fine art of versemaking to his unique combination of rigorous scholarship and storytelling flair.
The correlation between Flynn and Byron is certainly convincing. What a story...a wonderfully entertaining work.
