Uncle Curro. J.R.R. Tolkien's Spanish Connection

  • By José Manuel Ferrández Bru
$19.99
Product Description

This book is a biography, but also more than that. It reconstructs the little known personal journey of Francis Morgan Osborne (1857-1935), a Catholic priest born in Port St Mary's (Spain), guardian and "second father" of J.R.R. Tolkien, one of the most celebrated authors of our time.

This is the result of a thorough investigation, carried out between Spain and England, with the support, among others, of Priscilla Tolkien, daughter of the author, whose testimony provided previously unpublished insight into the connection between her father and Spain, through his guardian.
