The British writer spun adventure yarns with identity-swapping twins.
Anthony Hope (1863 —1933), was an English novelist and playwright. He was a prolific writer, especially of adventure novels but he is remembered best for The Prisoner of Zenda and its sequel Rupert of Hentzau. These books are set in the fictional country of Ruritania and spawned the genre known as Ruritanian romance. Zenda has inspired many adaptations, most notably the 1937 Hollywood movie of the same name.
