yes, JRR tolkien did come to Malawi early in the 20th century, some time just before he wrote his book, The Hobbit. the book was first published in 1937, so he must have visited Malawi in the early 1930's.Legend has it that he got his inspiration for The Hobbit when he climbed Mulanje Mountain.

He died in Bournemouth having been taken ill while visiting friends in the area.

A version was in exist…ence by the winter of 1932, when it was read by C. S. Lewis. The final version was sent to the publishers Allen & Unwin on 3 October 1936 for their consideration.

There is not a singular novel by JRR Tolkien, as he wrote many. A few that I can name off the top of my head, (And that I love) Are The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of th…e Ring, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, The Hobbit, and Unfinished Tales. I'm sure I missed a lot.

J.R.R. Tolkien was not particularly fond of writing long descriptions of people (although he did enjoy describing landscapes). Most of his descriptions are generalizations. …The Men of Rohan were mostly blond, with fair skin, and light eyes. The Dúnedain (the descendents of Elros, brother of Elrond) were generally very tall with dark hair, fair skin, and grey eyes. The Haradrim were dark of skin with dark hair. They wore much gold. Aragorn (one of the Dúnedain) is described as having shaggy dark hair, grey eyes, and weather-beaten skin. Boromir has dark hair, shorn about his shoulders, grey eyes, and pale skin. He is not as tall as Aragorn, but broad of the shoulders and very strongly built. He is handsome and kingly with a proud, kind face. There are other descriptions of men that Tolkien wrote for characters and races found in The Silmarillion, but since this question was not posted under that category, I do not know if you would be interested in those.
His main hobby was probably the creation of Middle Earth and its languages and it occupied most of the time not taken by his work as a University lecturer and his family. Bey…ond his writing his main hobby was probably painting and drawing, Some editions of "The Hobbit" use his illustrations and more of his drawings are published in a book called "JRR Tolkien Artist and Illustrator" ed,Hammond and Scull. He played Rugby Football at school.
