PENELOPE FITZGERALD The Knox Brothers with an introduction by Richard Holmes Edmund 1881–1971 Dillwyn . But because of her unusual, late-flowering literary career, it was in fact one of her earliest books, and seems intimately connected with her self-discovery as a writer.

In taking the measure of her formidable family background (and this is hardly a work of pious memorial), Penelope Fitzgerald found a narrative style, a fascination with human character, and a series of moral preoccupations which seemed to release the whole flow of her fiction.

The Knox Brothers book. Penelope Fitzgerald was born Penelope Mary Knox in December, 1916. Her father was Edmund Knox, the eldest of four Knox brothers: Edmund, born 1881, Dillwyn, born 1884, Wilfred, born 1886 and Ronald, 1888. To the Knox family were also born two sisters, Ethel, who remained at home, and Winifred, who married and also wrote detective stories (as, for a time, did Ronald). However, this biography is of the four, Knox brothers and so, a little sadly, the two sisters are minimal to the book.
Penelope Fitzgerald turns her novelist’s gaze on the quite extraordinary lives of her father and his three brothers. Dillwyn, ‘Dilly’, a Cambridge Greek scholar, was the first to crack the Enigma code and in so doing, is estimated to have shortened the Second World War by six months. Wilfred became a priest and welfare worker in the East End of London.

The Knox Brothers - Penelope Fitzgerald. Edmund, the industrious second son, who was to be the father of the four Knox brothers, was a stoutly built boy, with a native cheerfulness which was difficult to subdue. Of all the family he was the most profoundly influenced by the spiritual life of his mother. Her Quaker gift of prayer remained with him as he was gradually drawn towards the Evangelicals; what that meant, he has explained himself.
Penelope Fitzgerald, Holmes. Penelope Fitzgerald's biography of her remarkable family. I was very young I took my uncles for granted, and it never occurred to me that everyone else in the world was not like them.
