Rohan O'Grady is the pseudonym for June Margaret O'Grady who was born in Vancouver in 1922. O'Grady began writing poetry and stories as a young child and ventured into full length fiction in her late thirties after her marriage to newspaper editor Frederick Skinner. By 1963, O'Grady had published three novels in three years, O'Houlihan's Jest in 1961, Pippin's Journal in 1962, and Let's Kill Uncle in 1963. The latter two books were illustrated by Edward Gorey. In 1966, William Castle directed the Hollywood horror movie Let's Kill Uncle starring Nigel Green and Mary Badham (the young star of To Kill a Mockingbird). Several unproduced screenplays and two novels followed: Bleak November in 1970 and The Mayspoon in 1981. June Skinner has resided in West Vancouver since 1959.
'A dark, whimsical, startling book, far ahead of its time' Donna Tartt 'There must be a reason we have never heard of Rohan O'Grady for all these years -- but I cannot find it in the pages of Let's Kill Uncle. A thrilling, original book, exquisitely written, and unforgettable -- a classic, rediscovered' Hanan al-Shaykh 'Playfully sinister' Washington Post 'Excellent story, told with much charm' Evening Standard
