Life in the Writings of Storm Jameson: A Biography by Elizabeth Maslen



Margaret Storm Jameson (1891-1986) is primarily known as a compelling  essayist;  her  stature  as a  novelist  and  champion  of the dispossessed is largely forgotten. In Life in the Writings of

Storm  Jameson,  Elizabeth  Maslen  reveals  a  figure  who  held her   own   beside   fellow

British   women   writers,   including Virginia    Woolf;    anticipated    the    Angry    Young

 Women, such  as  Doris  Lessing;  and  was  an  early  champion  of  such European   writers   as

 Arthur   Koestler   and   Czesław   Miłosz. Jameson was a complex character whose politics were

grounded in social justice; she was passionately antifascist-her novel In the Second Year (1936) raised the alarm about Nazism- but always wary of communism. An eloquent polemicist, Jameson was, as president of the British P.E.N. during the 1930s and 1940s, of  invaluable  assistance  to refugee  writers.  Elizabeth  Maslen's biography introduces a true twentieth century hedgehog, whose essays and subtly experimental fi tion were admired in Europe and the States.
