Elizabeth Taylor: Three Novels
Available in Stock
Memorably described by fellow novelist Paul Bailey as 'reports from the chintz-bedecked battlefields', the novels of Elizabeth Taylor (1912-1975) are subtle, sophisticated portraits of English domestic life, its cruelties and its inadvertent comedy. Our three are A View of the Harbour (1947), set in a small coastal community; Angel (1957), the life of a writer of very bad novels; and Taylor's penultimate book, Mrs Palfrey at the Claremont (1971). With introductions by Sarah Waters, Hilary Mantel and Paul Bailey.
