Gillian Tindall - Author


Gillian Tindall is well known for the quality of her writing and the meticulous nature of her research. She is a master of miniaturist history, making a particular person or situation stand for a much larger picture. She began her career as a prize-winning novelist and has continued to publish fiction, but she has also staked out a particular territory in idiosyncratic non-fiction that is brilliantly evocative of place. Her books include The Fields Beneath: The History of One London Village; Celestine: Voices from a French Village; The Journey of Martin Nadaud; and The Man Who Drew London: Wenceslaus Hollar in Reality and Imagination (also published by Pimlico).
