Lloyd Stephens Bryce was a politician and author who was born on September 20, 1851, at Flushing, Long Island. After a boyhood
in Georgetown, D.C., he traveled in Europe and graduated from Christ Church, Oxford, in 1874. Bryce returned to the United
States and in 1879 married Edith Cooper of New York. After receiving a law degree he entered politics, winning a seat in the
U.S. Congress in 1886. His novel Paradise appeared the next year and, following his defeat for re-election to Congress, Bryce
turned to literature, publishing The Romance of an Alter Ego (1889; reissued as An Extraordinary Experience in 1891), Friends
in Exile (1893), and Lady Blanche's Salon (1899).
