Elizabeth Jane Howard wrote brilliant novels about what love can do to people, but in her own life the lasting relationship she sought so ardently always eluded her. She grew up yearning to be an actress; but when that ambition was thwarted by marriage and the war, she turned to fiction. Artemis Cooper's biography explores a woman trying to make sense of her life through her writing, as well as illuminating the literary world in which she lived.
