Kenneth Grahame
b. 3-8-1859; Edinburgh, Scotland
d. 7-6-1932; Pangbourne, Berkshire, England

Kenneth Grahame, unable to afford Oxford, worked at the Bank of England from 1879 till retirement in 1908.

While a young man in his 20s, Grahame began publishing short stories in periodicals; his masterpiece The Wind in the Willows (1908) features “four anthropomorphised animal characters in a pastoral version of England”.

Wind in the Willows -
They reached the carriage-drive of Toad Hall to find, as the Badger had anticipated, a shiny new motor-car, of great size, painted in a bright red (Toad's favourite colour), standing in front of the house. As they neared the door it was flung open, and Mr. Toad, arrayed in goggles, cap, gaiters, and enormous overcoat, came swaggering down the steps, drawing on his gauntleted gloves.

Günter Grass
b. 10-16-1927; Danzig (Gdansk, Poland)

Author and playwright Günter Grass won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1999 for “whose frolicsome black fables portray the forgotten face of history.”

Gunter Grass quote ~
• “People have always told tales. Long before humanity learned to write and gradually became literate, everybody told tales to everybody else and everybody listened to everybody else's tales. Before long it became clear that some of the still illiterate storytellers told more and better tales than others, that is, they could make more people believe their lies.” Nobel Lecture
