Elizabeth Jane Howard Book and Novel

Elizabeth Jane Howard - Author


Elizabeth Jane Howard Born: March 26, 1923, London Died: January 2, 2014. The author of twelve highly acclaimed novels and an absorbing and moving memoir, Slipstream, published in 2002. Her Cazalet Chronicles - Casting Off, The Light Years , Making Time and Confusion - have become established as modern classics and were televised by the BBC. In 2000, she was awarded a CBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours List.

Elizabeth Jane Howard died in January 2014.

Howard’s publisher, Maria Rejt, said: "Elizabeth Jane Howard leaves a body of work - non-fiction and 15 novels including the Cazalet quintet - that is remarkable in its profound humanity.
“Her novels illuminate and celebrate what it means to be alive - regardless of age, gender or circumstance - and they moved and inspired countless readers, as her vivacity and wisdom inspired her friends in her own eventful and extremely generous life.

“She was unfairly overlooked by the literary establishment, perhaps because her novels are so eminently readable but that was also part of her extraordinary gift as a writer: her life's lessons were given lightly and generously through her fiction but the struggle was always kept from view."

Pan Macmillan is to publish the paperback of All Change in April, to coincide with a Radio 4 dramatisation of the book.

If you like Elizabeth Jane Howard you might also like to read books by Annabel Dilke, Penny Vincenzi and Jane Smiley.
