About the Book

One of several books about the imaginary village of Thrums, which is supposed to be based on Barrie's hometown of Kirriemuir, is A Window in Thrums, which tells the tale of the "untrue son." Barrie was a novelist and playwright from Scotland. He is well known for his play Peter Pan, a fantastical tale about a kid who defied adolescence. Son of a weaver, Barrie pursued his education at the University of Edinburgh. He began a journalism career, worked for a Nottingham daily, and contributed to many London publications before moving to London in 1885. Scottish life is fictionalized in his earliest works, Auld Licht Idylls (1889) and A Window in Thrums (1889). The publication of The Little Minister cemented his status as a novelist (1891). Barrie continued to write novels for the next ten years, but with time his focus shifted to the theatre. He served as chancellor of the University of Edinburgh from 1930 until his death.

About Author

J. M. Barrie

Scottish author Sir James Matthew Barrie, 1st Baronet, is most known for creating Peter Pan. He was also a playwright. He was raised and educated in Scotland before relocating to London, where he penned a number of well-received books and plays. There, he met the Llewelyn Davies brothers, who later served as the inspiration for his works Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up, a 1904 West End "fairy play," about an ageless boy and an ordinary girl named Wendy who have adventures in the fantasy setting of Neverland. The story of a baby boy who has magical adventures in Kensington Gardens was first included in Barrie's 1902 adult novel The Little White Bird. Despite his ongoing success as a writer, Peter Pan eclipsed all of his earlier works and is credited with making the name Wendy well-known. After the deaths of the Davies boys' parents, Barrie adopted them clandestinely. George V created Barrie a baronet on June 14, 1913, and in the New Year's Honours of 1922, he was inducted into the Order of Merit.
