Author information

Agnes Keith was a young and promising journalist in San Francisco in November 1934 when she was savagely mugged by a drug addict with a two foot iron pipe on the doorstep of the San Francisco Examiner. During her long recovery from the resultant skull fractures, loss of memory and eyesight damage, she travelled a lot and on her return to California, somewhat restored, she met an Englishman, Harry Keith, whom she married and settled down to live with in Sandakan in N Borneo. Miraculously, she seems to have made a full recovery from her head injuries and to have regained all of her writing talents, which she lavished on three-books about her life in Borneo before, during and after the Second World War.
