Rex Stout "Nero Wolfe collection"


Wolfe's creator, Rex Stout, was an American mystery writer, businessman, and activist. Born in Indiana in 1886 to Quaker parents, he was raised in Kansas and, by most accounts, was quite the precocious child, reading the Bible cover to cover (twice!) before he was four, and becoming state spelling champion at the age of thirteen. After a brief time at Kansas University, joined the navy, and served on President Roosevelt's yacht from 1906 to 1908. He worked as a bookkeeper, a salesman, hotel manager and store clerk, while trying to crack the pulps, cranking out tales of science fiction, romance and adventure. Ever practical, Stout teamed up with his brother, and established a business whose success would enabler him to continue with his writing.

The first of forty-seven Nero Wolfe books, Fer-de-Lance was published in 1934, to popular and critical acclaim, and by the start of World War II, Stout was a full-time writer. He was also a tireless promoter of the war effort, giving speeches, as hosting radio shows and chairing the Writers War Board. After the war he actively worked for groups including Friends for Democracy, Society for the Prevention of World War III and Writers Board for World Government. Not surprisingly McCarthy's HUAC committee came sniffing around, but Stout managed to avoid appearing before them. Stout also served several terms as an officer of the Authors' League of America and one term as president of the Mystery Writers of America. In 1958 he was honored with the MWA Grand Master Award.
