Riassunto: Nevil Shute's autobiography charts his selected remembrances from childhood to 1938. The parallels between Shute's life and his bestselling works of fiction can clearly be seen: airship engineering, the new industry of commercial aircraft and his experience of civil servants and bureaucratic military agencies. Nevil Shute Norway worked as an aeronautical engineer at Vickers before setting up his own airship company. He served in both world wars and was a commander in the Royal Navy Volunteer Reserve in World War II, working on secret projects. He flew his own aircraft to Australia to research ON THE BEACH, before settling there permanently. His autobiography gives great insight into an important historical period and provides essential lessons for today's society.
