Gideon Haigh in the Telegraph:

They don’t make novelists like Nevil Shute any more: a self-made millionaire who served in both world wars, allergic to literary society, disdainful of critics and against state support for the arts.

It’s 50 years since Shute’s On The Beach was published; quite a book, and quite a writer.
