About the Author
Stanley Houghton (1881-1913) was born in Ashton-upon-Mersey, Sale, Cheshire and went into his father's cotton business where he worked until the success of Hindle Wakes in 1912 allowed him to finally achieve his ambition to become a professional writer. He died just a year later of meningitis.
