Making the world smile, one muscle at a time

Beryl Margaret Bainbridge was my favourite English language writer from the second half of the Twentieth Century. Although the great and the good (The Times greatest British writers since 1945) have her at number twenty-six behind such luminaries as Muriel Spark, Martin Amis and Penelope Fitzgerald. Ah well, so much for the great and the good.

Her creative period extends from 1967 to 2005 and includes eighteen novels, four non-fiction books, and two collections of short stories.
