Sir James Matthew Barrie, 1st Baronet, OM (9 May 1860 - 19 June 1937), more commonly known as J. M. Barrie, was a Scottish novelist and dramatist. He is best remembered for creating Peter Pan, the boy who refused to grow up. His book "ECHOES OF THE WAR" contains four short stories. "THE OLD LADY SHOWS HER MEDALS", "THE NEW WORD", "BARBARA'S WEDDING", and "A WELL-REMEMBERED VOICE" The stories, like "Peter Pan," are about death and loss and the way family life tries to tame–literally, to domesticate–those painful realities. While "Peter Pan" is essentially and deliberately timeless, "Echoes of the War" is firmly anchored in the time of The Great War and the social disruptions it created.
