Loved and admired, and increasingly recognised as one of the outstanding novelists of her time, Penelope Fitzgerald remains, also, mysterious and intriguing. She liked to mislead people with a good imitation of an absent-minded old lady; but under that scatty front were a steel-sharp brain and an imagination of wonderful reach. This biography -- by a biographer whom Fitzgerald herself admired -- pursues her life, her writing, and her secret self, with fascinated interest. 2014, c2013.
