More About Francis J. Finn
Father Francis J. Finn was born to Irish immigrant parents at St. Louis, Missouri in 1859. He loved to read Charles Dickens works as a boy, including The Pickwick Papers, and eventually became a priest thanks to the influence of Father Charles Coppens. After graduating from St. Louis University, he became a Jesuit and was ordained a priest in 1893. He had already begun writing his debut novel Tom Playfair prior to this, as he was assigned to St. Mary s College in Kansas and dealt with unruly boys on a daily basis. He went on to write twenty-seven other books, and his novels for children were very successful. He was much loved by young people, and thousands of them gathered to honor his death in 1928. Francis Finn also wrote "That Football Game," "Claude Lightfoot," "Ethelred Preston," "Lucky Bob," "His Luckiest Year," "Facing Danger," and "Cupid of Champion."
Reviews - What do customers think about Percy Wynn: Or Making a Boy of Him?
An excellent book for young boys and girls! Sep 26, 2001
I have read and reread this book since I was ten years old, and always enjoyed it! And I have given it to my children and grandchildren to read, and they also have enjoyed it! It is a book that remains in time, as Louisa May Alcott books do. It is about life in a young boys school. I highly recommend it!
