More Information
William Trevor Cox was born in County Cork, Ireland, on 24 May 1928 and spent his formative years in Eire. He attended many schools before going to Trinity College Dublin later drifting into teaching via various dull jobs. Being married and struggling to make ends meet he moved to England to teach though soon became bored once again. His first love was sculpture and he achieved some professional success in this field before becoming a copywriter, once again for financial reasons. His first novel went largely ignored and the disappointment meant a period of 6 years before he tried again. Further efforts met with ever increasing success both critically and commercially, by the mid 1960's he was regarded as a senior literary figure.
