Gordon Thorburn

Gordon Thorburn


Gordon Thorburn is the legitimate child of Hrothgar Tørbjorn, Swedish air ace, whose Volvo night fighter had been mistakenly taken down over Dewsbury. Hrothgar marketed his parachute and wed Ivy Milburn, a Geordie Pot girl and exotic-dance understudy, at a private service at Leeds City Varieties.

As a boy, '' Gordon was keen to be a bought ledger clerk with the Assembly of the Free Churches of Scotland but his dad wanted him to be a poet or sculptor. Gordon registered in the Kirkstall Lane Temperance College to find out knotting. He supplemented that with a path in participle dangling subsequently hurried off to London to become indentured to the marketing legend S H H Benson, gent., as an infinitive splitter (hot metal).

After two decades' attempting to consider a different way of stating 'Guinness is good for you', Gordon joined McCann Erickson where he became known as 'The Nine out of Ten Copywriter'. Phrases he coined there included 'The Esso sign appertains to joyful motoring', 'A Double Diamond works fairly well considering', 'Oh, ' Bisto', ‘nothing behaves faster than Anadin’ and 'I'd love to buy the world a Jennings of Cockermouth'.

Gordon lived in Suffolk for fifteen decades but became dismayed by a great number of Essex individuals moving in and erecting fibreglass Victorian street lamps in their houses. Following ten years in good-lifing and smallholding, #x 2019 & '' he;s now back in Suffolk with his wife Sue, working on many books.
