Walker has drawn from his diverse personal experience, setting his novels in Scotland, Germany, India, and Canada. His novel The Pillar is based on the five years he spent in a German prison camp during World War II. (See also Contemporary Authors, Vols. 1-4, rev. ed., and Something about the Author, Vol. 8.)
