  Above, Maynard Allington in the Cotswolds during his three years in England. Allington has been a lifelong fan of D.H. Lawrence, Somerset Maugham, and Graham Greene. All three have to some extent shaped his development as a novelist.       Above, Maynard Allington on the beach at San Sebastian Spain, tracing the footsteps of Ernest Hemingway in “The Sun Also Rises.”  The trip by train from Paris to the Spanish border was exactly as the young Hemingway had described it years earlier in his novel, as were the Concha and harbor promenade and the "green mountainside beyond the roofs of the town” (partly visible to the left in this photo).
