1907. Illustrated. Robert Hichens is best known today as the author of the classic supernatural tale How Love Came to Professor Guildea. He was a prolific author, producing volumes of fiction and nonfiction that frequently achieved huge commercial success, such as The Garden of Allah and The Paradine Case. Barbary Sheep begins: Sir Claude Wyverne was a simple and rather heavy young Englishman, who had married a very frivolous wife, and who adored her. Adoration leads to abnegation, and Sir Claude, as soon as he was a married man, began to give way to Lady Wyverne. She was a very pretty and changeable blonde. Any permanence seemed to her dull; and this trait secretly agitated her husband, who desired to be permanent in her life and not to be thought dull by her.
