Penelope Fitzgerald (1916-2000) is now acknowledged as one of the finest English novelists of the late 20th century. Introduced by her friend AS Byatt, this selection of her letters spans more than half a century. Their recipients range from family and intimate friends to fellow writers such as Sybille Bedford, Julian Barnes and Hilary Mantel. Tender, funny, sometimes scathing but always insightful, they produce a rounded picture of this remarkable woman as a mother, a writer and a friend.
