Elizabeth Jane Howard        UK    1923-2014

 

For much of a career

spanning more than 60 years,

the writer Elizabeth Jane Howard (...)

suffered a certain condescension

from literary editors as a writer

of "women's novels".

 

But it did not deter her.

 

She herself described

her readers

as "women and educated men",

and expressed "puzzlement"

when Margaret Drabble

left her out of her 1985 edition

of The Oxford Companion

to English Literature.
