Margaret Drabble: The Pure Gold Baby

Margaret Drabble, one of the most incisive and empathetic of contemporary novelists, crowned 2013 with a new novel of stealthy power, charting the life of Anna, an everywoman of feminism’s progress. Last year also saw her published in Penguin Modern Classics, with the haunting collected stories, A Day In The Life Of A Smiling Woman. Drabble talks about her exceptional career, from opposing Guantanamo Bay and discussing assisted suicide to editing the Oxford Companion to English Literature. 

Often described as being the author one should read to get a clear view of what it’s like to live in England, Margaret Drabble’s writing career started in 1964 with The Summer Bird Cage and she has published many novels, memoirs and non-fiction books ever since including, The Millstone, The Seven Sisters, For Queen and Country and A Writer’s Britain.
