Simon Gough Book and Novel

Simon Gough - Author


The only child of the actor Michael Gough and actress-cum-journalist Diana Graves, Simon Gough was born in 1942. He was brought up in France, Italy and Spain by a number of surrogate parents, as well as his own, and spent much of his childhood in brutal boarding establishments until he was finally expelled from his last school for trying to blow it up. He has revelled in freedom ever since - and in changes of career, from washing up to writing for the BBC, to acting, to selling the finest antiquarian books in London and Norfolk,(at which he excelled by accepting a modest loss on every volume sold). The White Goddess: An Encounter is the first of two books concerning the extraordinary events surrounding his relationship with his great-uncle Robert Graves; the second is nearing completion.
