Penelope Fitzgerald


Good news that Penelope Fitzgerald now has a permanent space on the web, and a little shameful that the originators are American- why couldn't we manage it in Britain? Well, I suppose the web knows no boundaries, and it is an excellent site- congratulations to those who put it together. It's curious, as Dovegreyreader says, how PF has never had the kind of reputation that her work deserves. I hope this will be the start of an upswing in her fortunes. It would help if the US press would review her letters!

Hi Courtney - it's a small island in Norway. Glad that you have set up the PF site, and I hope it's successful. I wrote an article about Offshore for the Dictionary of Literary Biography. I can let you have a copy if you wish.
