Description

Born in Germany to aristocratic parents, Sybille Bedford’s (1911-2006) life contained all the grand feeling and seismic event of the 20th century: war and peace, love and trauma, friendship and death, as well as the need to write and rescue something from this wreckage. Openly gay, Bedford once said ‘I wish I’d written more books and spent less time being in love. It’s very difficult doing both at the same time.’ In her forties she published her breakthrough novel, ‘A Legacy,’ continuing to publish until her early nineties, writing some of the outstanding and most original novels, memoirs and travel books of the century.
