Woodiss is Willing by Henry Woodiss | New Release Spotlight

Woodiss is Willing

by Henry Woodiss

Edited by George Dalrymple

Page Count: 245
Published: 26TH AUGUST 2016
Published by: Help For Writers
Genre: Biography

Henry Woodiss is both the author and hero of this work.

The book reads as comic ficBon, but it is based on a truthful chronicle of his life – and especially his complicated love-life - during the first years of World War Two, plus the long and detailed look-back at his love affair with his employer’s wife
and the furious reacBon that the affair educed.

The main events of Woodiss’s life are well-documented and may be accepted as fact. He was born in 1897 in Yorkshire and served with disBncBon during the Great War. On discharge he set up in business. APer several years, his business failed and to make ends meet he took a temporary job as a gamekeeper.

His employer was Sir Coningsby Coningsby-Clarke. Sir Con had been severely injured during the war and was confined to a wheelchair. Having married shorty before he was injured, his wife, Edith, was described as ‘a pleasant, sweet-natured young woman, though rather plain.’ By all accounts, Woodiss was a handsome, well-built, and vigorous man. He was about twenty-eight years of age when he and Edith met.

As a result of his affair with Lady Edith, Woodiss was thrust into one of the most sensaBonal scandals of the day. Inevitably, he emerged as the villain. The newspapers characterised him as a vulgar seducer, a servant who had betrayed his master’s trust. The truth, as ever, was more complicated. It’s not certain why Woodiss wrote his story as comic ficBon: on the one hand he wanted to ‘put the record straight’, but on the other he seemed not to want people to know who the author was. He wrote in a straighYorward manner, as if telling a serious story, but he presented everything as a joke.

Woodiss had provided a Btle for his book, but had not included an author’s name. Mr. Dalrymple took the view that since Woodiss wrote the book, it should be his name that appears on it. Woodiss is Willing is raunchy, saBrical and mocks everybody, not least himself, a hapless clown, in the middle of a farce.
