Summary

THE LUCKY ONE is the timeless story of antagonism between two brothers: Gerald, who stands in the sun and Bob, who stands in Gerald’s shadow. When Bob finds himself in serious legal trouble, he turns to Gerald for rescue. When Gerald fails to come through, years of simmering resentment boil over in a confrontation that is as stirring as it is surprising.

Alan Alexander Milne had been the assistant editor and a regular contributor to Punch Magazine for ten years before he joined the war effort at the age of 32, as a signals officer. It was in the Army that Milne first turned his hand to playwriting, which he considered a luxury for a journalist. “When an article is written,” Milne explained, “the financial reward is a matter of certainty…But when a play is written, there is no certainty of anything save disillusionment…I thought I could write one (we all do) but I could not afford so unpromising a gamble. But once in the Army the case was altered.”
