ELSPETH HUXLEY, A BIBLIOGRAPHY
Cross, Robert and Michael Perkin
With a foreword by Elspeth Huxley.
First edition. The fifth volume in the Winchester Bibliographies of Twentieth Century Writers series. Mrs. Huxley's writing life began at the age of fourteen when she sent anonymous articles, often with her own photographs, to the EAST AFRICAN STANDARD and other periodicals. By the age of seventeen she had written ninety-six published articles for editors who often had no idea who she was. Mrs. Huxley went on to write over forty-seven books, including the intriguing bestseller THE FLAME TRESS OF THIKA, which was turned into a successful TV series in Britain, America and over thirty other countries.
This bibliography describes the evolution of a remarkable writer, as well as gifted photographer, whose insight into people and her penetrating humor cast invaluable light on the Colonial and post-Colonial era in Africa. Illustrated.
