Product description


Scottish novelist and poet, Naomi Mitchison was born in Edinburgh in 1897, the daughter of philosopher John Scott Haldane. She was an early campaigner for women's birth control and became involved with pacifism and women's rights. At Oxford she was a close friend of Aldous Huxley. she married Labour MP G.R Mitchison in 1916, and during the World War I worked as a VAD nurse in London. Her literary career commenced in the early 1920s with poems and plays, and she has now written more than 72 books - novels as well as travel and history books and autobiography. In 1935, her novel "We Have Been Warned" which dealt with rape and abortion was censored. In the same year she stood as Labour Candidate and in 1937, moved to Carradale where she still lives. This biography explores her literary and political life and career.
