Nina Bawden, CBE, is one of Britain's most distinguished and best-loved novelists. She has published over forty novels and was shortlisted for the Booker Prize for Circles of Deceit. In 2004 she received the PEN Award for a Lifetime's Service to Literature.Review:
'A highly revealing account, not only of a woman's life, but of a whole extraordinary passage in one contemporary European country...it should be read by everybody interested in Spain and in women's special history in the present century' --Financial Times
'It is unfair to look for a poetic sensibility in the daughter of a poet, yet Lucia Graves has plenty of it. She is a fine writer' --Literary Review
'Nina Bawden beautifully captures the capricious intensity of sibling love, rivalry and loyalty. She is reluctant to pin blame and quick to display compassion. She is also logical enough to offer no easy solutions, but sufficiently warm-hearted to include realistic sprinklings of hope. The combination is excellent; her book is a joy to read' --Christian Science Monitor
