So I Have Thought of You(2004)
The Letters of Penelope Fitzgerald
A non fiction book by Penelope Fitzgerald
A fascinating collection of letters from the great English novelist -- and prolific correspondent -- Penelope Fitzgerald. Acclaimed for her exquisitely elegant novels -- including the Booker Prize-winning 'Offshore' -- and superb biographies, Penelope Fitzgerald was one of the finest British authors of the last century. Published here for the first time are her collected letters. An unparalleled record of the life of this greatly admired writer, these letters reveal her most important family relationships and friendships, and paint a clear picture both of herself and of her correspondents. They show us how she managed her own career -- according to her own convictions -- and how determined she was to put her world view across. A fascinating portrait of Penelope Fitzgerald as a mother, as a friend and as a writer, these letters give the same pleasure they gave to those who first opened them. Penelope Fitzgerald was one of the most distinctive voices in British literature. The prize-winning author of nine novels, three biographies and one collection of short stories, she died in 2000.
"Of all the novelists in English of the last quarter-century, Penelope Fitzgerald has the most unarguable claim on greatness." - Philip Hensher
