'Utterly Immoral'. A true and fascinating story about the First World War and beyond with Simon Keable Elliot
08 Dec

We welcome Simon Keable Elliott to the Sussex Branch of The Western Front Association.

When Robert Keable’s First World War novel Simon Called Peter was published, critics called it ‘offensive’, ‘a libel’ and reeking of ‘drink and lust’. Scott Fitzgerald suggested it was ‘utterly immoral’ and referenced it in The Great Gatsby.

In Utterly Immoral, Robert Keable‘s grandson, Simon has used letters, books, articles, interviews and even a trip to Tahiti to produce a fascinating account of Robert Keable’s life and the story of the success of Simon Called Peter.
