An English novelist who later spent much of his time in Australia, the author Nevil Shute Norway, or simply Nevil Shute as he went by his pen-name, was primarily known for his books that tackled everyday issues such as work, race and social-barriers. With a clear and easy to read style, he was known for his direct and straightforward approach that immediately engaged the reader jumping right off the page. Not only that, but he also had a highly successful aeronautical career as an engineer, something which he balanced alongside his work as a writer, something which his pseudonym helped with as the two didn’t overlap.
