Description
This is the first biography of a remarkable writer and incorrigible rebel. Evelyn Sharp was born into a privileged family in 1869 and became a very popular writer of schoolgirl fiction. Extremely versatile, she also produced fairy tales alongside stories for the infamous Yellow Book and was a Manchester Guardian journalist for more than four decades, becoming the first regular contributor to its iconic Women’s Page. Before and during the First World War she was a leading suffragette, editing the newspaper, Votes for Women, and being imprisoned twice as a tax resister. After a long relationship with the war correspondent, Henry Nevinson, the couple married when she was sixty-three.
