Chloe Marr Summary

Chloe Marr by A. A. Milne

In this 1946 novel, Chloe Marr is young, beautiful and so irresistible that countless men fall in love with her. Her story is told through the eyes of her numerous suitors and her women friends who are drawn to her because of her charm and warmth. But nobody really knows anything about her background, and in London society such mystique carries both allure and suspicion. Her life is a whirlwind of dinners, holidays, romantic trysts and parties told with Milne's signature humour and lightness of touch. A. A. Milne's ability to portray artistic London society is second to none but his novel has a more serious message which is emphasised by Chloe's untimely exodus from the people around her - nobody really knows the truth about anybody else.

Chloe Marr Reviews

Here, in short, is a book which will delight A.A. Milne's admirers and will captivate those who are discovering him for the first time. * Original Cover Copy *

About A. A. Milne

A. A. Milne (Alan Alexander) was born in London in 1882 and educated at Westminster School and Trinity College, Cambridge. In 1902 he was Editor of Granta, the University magazine, and moved back to London the following year to enter journalism. By 1906 he was Assistant Editor of Punch, a post which he held until the beginning of the First World War when he joined the Royal Warwickshire Regiment. While in the army in 1917 he started on a career writing plays of which his best known are Mr. Pim Passes By, The Dover Road and an adaptation of Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows - Toad of Toad Hall. He married Dorothy de Selincourt in 1913 and in 1920 had a son, Christopher Robin. By 1924 Milne was a highly successful playwright, and published the first of his four books for children, a set of poems called When We Were Very Young, which he wrote for his son. This was followed by the storybook Winnie-the-Pooh in 1926, more poems in Now We Are Six (1927) and further stories in The House at Pooh Corner (1928). In addition to his now famous works, Milne wrote many novels, volumes of essays, a well known detective story The Red House Mystery and light verse, works which attracted great success at the time. He continued to be a prolific writer until his death in 1956.
