About the author (1982)

Sybille Bedford was born in 1911, in Charlottenburg, Germany, and was brought up in Italy, England, and France. In 1953, she made her literary debut with A Visit to Don Otavio, and has since published eight other books--novels, travel books, classic accounts of criminal trials and other courtroom cases, and an acclaimed biography of her mentor Aldous Huxley. A vice president of English Pen and one of Britain's nine Companions of Literature, Mrs. Bedford lives in London.
