More About the Author

Sarah LeFanu was born in Aberdeen, Scotland in 1953. She was brought up in Scotland and in East Africa, and lived and worked in Mozambique in the immediate post-independence years. Sarah is the author of the ground-breaking In the Chinks of the World Machine: Feminism and Science Fiction, which won the prestigious MLA Emily Toth Award, and of the biography Rose Macaulay, which was hailed in the Times Literary Supplement as 'rich and perceptive' and in the Sunday Telegraph as 'an exhilarating book'. From 2003 to 2009 Sarah was Artistic Director of the Bath Literature Festival. She teaches on Bristol University's BA in English Literature and Community Engagement. Her most recent books are Dreaming of Rose: A Biographer's Journal (SilverWood, 2013), described by Sarah Bakewell as 'wise and charming ... a tribute to biography itself', and S is for Samora: A Lexical Biography of Samora Machel and the Mozambican Dream (Hurst & Co, 2012), described by Henning Mankell as 'vivid, clear-eyed'.

How sad it is out of print! 15 May 2000
By TammyJo Eckhart - Published on
Format: Paperback
A wonderful and thoughtful analysis of science fiction written by women and about women. While I disagreed with some of her conclusions, I found th book well researched and well written. A must read source for anyone studying women's writing or science fiction as literature.
