Fire Down Below by Victoria Glendinning Fire Down Below, Paperback (November 2013)

A decrepit warship sails on the last stretch of its voyage to Sydney Cove. It has been blown off course and battered by wind, storm and ice. Little but rope holds the disintegrating hull together. And after a risky operation to reset its foremast, an unseen fire begins to smoulder below decks.

Raffles by Victoria Glendinning Raffles, Paperback (August 2013)

Thomas Stamford Raffles (1781-1826) was the charismatic and persuasive founder of Singapore and Governor of Java. This title charts his prodigious rise within the social and historical contexts of his world.

Suppressed Cry by Victoria Glendinning Suppressed Cry, Paperback (January 2013)

A loving but clear-eyed portrait of a family and an era, this is Victoria Glendinning's first book.

Rebecca West by Victoria Glendinning Rebecca West, Paperback (July 2012)

I had never met anything like her before, H G Wells wrote of meeting Rebecca West in 1913, and I doubt if there ever was anything like her before. Born Cicily Fairfield, West renamed herself after the character she had once played in Ibsen's "Rosmersholm". This 'short' biography accounts for and explores West's legacy.

UK Kirkus Review » Trollope is actually jolly good, in spite of the hearty philistinism of his braying groupies. He understood the English middle classes, in their extraordinary ordinariness, better than most. I never think he is quite in the same league as Dickens, George Eliot, and one book by Thackeray. Victoria Glendinning is in love with him, and is just about the best literary biographer in the world at the height of her powers. She has sent me back to the oeuvre, which is gratifyingly huge (part of the attraction for Trollopians: they never need read anything else), and persuaded me that he is good on women, and no more anti-Semitic than his John Bull contemporaries. Review by Philip Howard (Kirkus UK)
