David Arkell

  • About
  • Reviews
  • David Arkell was born in Weybridge, Surrey in 1913, the son of the author Reginald Arkell. He worked variously as a translator, literary biographer and journalist in England and also in France, where he was imprisoned during World War II.
    Praise for David Arkell 'Like most of the best journalists there is a touch of the poet about David Arkell. His pieces off the reader more than the fleeting pleasures of anecdotal whimsy. They make you want to visit the places he describes with such clarity, to read the books he opens before you, to see anew and think again.'
    Nigel Jenkins, Wales On Sunday
