American writer who related a horror tale of the brutal nightmare of his early life and his hatred for his father, a sadistic alcoholic, in "Father Figure." The book was a far cry from his gardening books, stories about cats, and tales of quiet life, for which he was well known. His first novel, "Prelude," was published when he was 20.

His father enslaved his wife and three sons for 40 years. Beverly tried to kill his father three times: the first time he gave him poison and his dad threw up; the second time, a week later, he rigged an accident in which his dad broke his leg; and the third time, on 3/31/1929, he gave pills to his drunk father that had no effect. He loved his mother, Pauline. She died on 6/20/1939 at the age of 73, leaving her entire estate to her boys. After Pauline's death, his father never drank again.

Nichols died on 9/15/1983 in London, just a few days after his 83rd birthday.
