Synopsis

A.J.A. Symons (1900-1941) pursued a wide variety of projects in his short life, writing and editing works on the verse of the 1890s, the history of the Nonesuch Press, and critical studies of various figures of note. He is remembered for his groundbreaking biography of the bizarre genius Baron Corvo and for his own eccentric hobbies, as chronicled in a biography written by his brother, the mystery novelist Julian Symons.

Her novels include the Booker Prize-winning  Possession ,  The Biographer’s Tale  and the quartet, The Virgin in the Garden ,  Still Life ,  Babel Tower  and  A Whistling Woman.  Her most recent novel,  The Children’s Book  was published in 2009.
