Profile: Stanley Bloom

About This Author

Stanley Bloom was born in London, but has lived in Sweden for many years. A graduate of the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), he was on the staff of Radio Sweden before turning freelance and has long experience of international and educational broadcasting. He is the author of Blue Guide, Sweden (London and New York) and Binny and Belloe, a fantasy tale intended for young and old. The Sorcerer Of Stockholm is his latest book. He has also edited and/or translated many works, taught English at most levels, lectured on a range of subjects, run an intensive course for company employees needing to write documents in English, and travels a great deal, mainly to the UK, California and New Zealand, though it would take a lot to make him leave Sweden in the summer, where his favourite place is in the Stockholm archipelago. He has had a lifelong interest in sport and been a keen photographer since starting to process his own black-and-white photos in his schooldays. At one time he also played the fiddle in a folk group. The Sorcerer Of Stockholm is not yet available as an ebook, but should be early in 2015. On the other hand, Binny And Belloe is available as an ebook now, (see www.amazon.com/Binny-And-Belloe-Stanley-Bloom-ebook/dp/B00AW0O4D2) as are two books Stanley has edited by his late brother David: Indian Diary, a vivid and at times hilarious account of an odyssey to India in 1973, (www.amazon.com/Indian-Diary-David-Bloom-ebook/dp/B00C3OH5XG) and a series of reflections about their uncle, Jack Solomons, (www.amazon.com/Jolly-Jack-Solomons-David-Bloom-ebook/dp/B00FDPAOTY) giving a unique insight into the background, life and achievements of the man who became Britain’s and Europe’s leading boxing promoter in the decades after the Second World War.
