Riassunto: In a writing career that covered the first fifty years of the twentieth century, Rose Macaulay produced twenty-three novels, six books of criticism, four books of travel and history and two collections of poetry, as well as a huge correspondence with her friends, figures such as Elizabeth Bowen, Virgina Woolf, EM Forster and TS Eliot. She gave the impression of being sexually uninterested in men ('she looked like a eunuch', said catty Virginia Woolf who did not take kindly to the fact that Rose's books were more popular than hers), while for a quarter of a century she was passionately in love with a married man. The relationship ended only with his death in 1942. A great comic writer who excelled at satire, she was also an innovator and experimenter and a sharp and invigorating commentator on matters of popular and public interest.
L'autore: Sarah LeFanu is a writer and broadcaster. Her study of feminism and science fiction is published by The Women's Press and she has edited several collections of short stories, most recently for Serpent's Tail. She presents Radio 4's 'A Good Read'.
