G(erald) B(asil) Edwards 1899–1976

English novelist.

Edwards's only novel, The Book of Ebenezer Le Page, was published posthumously due to the enthusiastic support of John Fowles, who wrote its introduction. The book is a fictional reminiscence of an elderly bachelor similar to Edwards himself. Set in the Channel Island of Guernsey, it spans nearly eighty years of the twentieth century and details the cultural changes experienced by an island folk accustomed to being isolated. In his "eccentric" voice, Edwards pays tribute to the past, to a place, and to human dignity.
