Penelope Fitzgerald

Described by the Guardian as ‘one the most distinctive and elegant voices in contemporary British fiction’, Penelope Fitzgerald was one of the twentieth-century’s most acclaimed British novelists.

Born in 1916, Fitzgerald didn’t start writing until the 1960’s and her first novel, The Golden Child, wasn’t published until 1977. Her early writing drew on her own life experiences, including her time running a bookshop which inspired her Booker Prize-shortlisted novel The Bookshop – Fitzgerald was shortlisted twice more for the prize for The Beginning of Spring and The Gate of Angels and won the award for her 1979 novel Offshore. Her other works include the highly regarded 1995 novel The Blue Flower, The Means of Escape (a collection of short stories) and several biographies including works on Edward Burne-Jones and Charlotte Mew.
