In one of the most extraordinary memoirs of recent years, Lorna Sage brings alive her girlhood in post-war provincial Britain.

Synopsis

Bad Blood by Lorna Sage

A literary memoir, which illuminates the lives of three generations of women. It talks about the author's eccentric family and somewhat bizarre upbringing in the small town of Hanmer, on the border between Wales and Shropshire.

Reviews

‘A wonderful book. Women need this kind of book but perhaps men need it more, to give the sort of understanding which we still lack of how girls actually grow up.’ Margaret Forster

About the Author

An influential literary critic, Lorna Sage taught English at British and American universities and was most recently professor of English at the University of East Anglia. Her previous books include Women in the House of Fiction, The Cambridge Guide to Women's Writing in English, and a short monograph on Angela Carter.
