About Winston Churchill
Winston Churchill was an American novelist who moved to Canaan, New Hampshire in 1899.
Churchill’s early novels were historical but his later works were set in contemporary
America. He often sought to include his political ideas into his novels. Churchill
wrote in the naturalist style of literature, and some have called him the most influential
of the American naturalists.
