Rose Macaulay by Sarah Lefanu
Book DescriptionIn a writing career that covered the first fifty years of the twentieth century, Rose Macaulay produced twenty-three novels, six books of criticism, four books of travel and history and two collections of poetry, as well as a huge correspondence with her friends, figures such as Elizabeth Bowen, Virgina Woolf, EM Forster and TS Eliot. She gave the impression of being sexually uninterested in men ('she looked like a eunuch', said catty Virginia Woolf who did not take kindly to the fact that Rose's books were more popular than hers), while for a quarter of a century she was passionately in love with a married man. The relationship ended only with his death in 1942. A great comic writer who excelled at satire, she was also an innovator and experimenter and a sharp and invigorating commentator on matters of popular and public interest.

Rose Macaulay's powerfully-felt pacifist novel of the First World War records the suffering and passion of Alix Sandomir's rebellion against the foolishness of her fellow non-combatants. The year is 1915, and Alix moves from her cousins home in the country to the suburban villa Violette with its impervious, engrossed household.
