Beryl Bainbridge is celebrated as one of the finest novelists of recent years, but few know of her lifelong passion for drawing and painting. Psiche Hughes, a close friend from 1963 until the writer’s death in 1990, charts her Liverpool childhood, struggles to become a writer, family life and literary success. Generously illustrated with photographs, book jackets and Beryl’s own art, this biography explores her exuberant and sometimes macabre creativity both on canvas and on the page.
