The Wind Bloweth

1922. Seven chapters in the life of another fool sentimentalist, a story, magically told, touching all the chords of life. Donn Byrne tells a storyof things as they were almost within the memory of living men, of some things that will be the same in the longest memory of men now living-of the days of the last of the clipper ships, and of a lad that sailed one, and the strange thing that was his life, and of the women who made the epochs in it. Contents: Dancing Town; The Wake at Ardee; The Mouth of Honey; The Wrestler from Aleppo; The Valley of the Black Pig; The Bold Fenian Men; and The Kingdom and the Power and the Glory. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing. Книга представляет собойрепринтное издание 1922 года (издательство "New York: The Century Co." ).

Donn Byrne (20 novembre 1889 à New York - 1928) est un écrivain américain. Collaborateur de divers magazines (Harper's, Smart Set, Lady's Home Journal), il a publié de nombreux romans ayant pour cadre l'Irlande, le Moyen-Orient ou l'Amérique.

Biographie

Officiellement né sous le nom de Brian Oswald Patrick Donn Byrne, il est né à New-York de parents irlandais. Alors qu'il est très jeune enfant, sa famille part s'établir en Irlande à Forkhill dans le Conté d'Armagh. En 1911, après des études au University College à Dublin (UCD), puis à la Sorbonne à Paris et à Leipzig, Byrne retourne aux États-Unis.

Huit ans après, il quitte New-York pour revenir en Europe. Il voyage alors beaucoup en Europe, pour s'établir à Montrose, puis à Donnybrook, près de Dublin de 1922 à 1925. En 1928, il achete le château Coolmain Castle à Kilbrittain dans le conté de Cork.

Il est mort dans un accident de voiture, qui a quitté la route pour tomber et couler dans la mer, juste à côté du château qu'il venait d'acheter.

En France, son livre le plus connu est sans doute La Baie du destin (Destiny Bay, 1928), traduit de l'anglais par Maurice Rancès (Éditions Gallimard, 1931).
