Beryl Bainbridge: Love By All Sorts Of Means

A biography of the novelist who denied that she ever wrote fiction, maintaining that her books were based on her experiences. “What is more peculiar, more riveting, devious and horrific than real life?” she said. But while her own life was the primary source for her books, she was never afraid of adding a little colour.
