Jean Stafford

The Life of a Writer

by David Roberts

Paperback / softback Publication Date: 01/12/1988

  $50.50
Jean Stafford burst on the literary scene in 1944, when, at the age of twenty-nine, she published her bestselling novel, Boston Adventure. Three years later, Life magazine hailed her as the "most brilliant of the new fiction writers." Bafflingly, for the rest of her life, Stafford would struggle--and fail--to capitalize on that early promise.

David Roberts' compelling biography examines Stafford's disastrous marriages, including her first marriage to the volatile poet Robert Lowell, which culminated for her in a lengthy stay in a psychiatric hospital. Beautiful and gifted, Stafford squandered her health as well as her talent, ending her life embittered and alone.

David Roberts

David Roberts has earned great acclaim for his distinctive illustrations. David's work includes collaborations with his sister Lynn on retellings of several classic fairy stories - their book Little Red was shortlisted for the 2005 CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal.

David's first collaboration with Julia Donaldson - Tyrannosaurus Drip - was published in 2007 by Macmillan, and since then they have worked together on several other picture books.

David is also the illustrator of the New York Times bestselling Rosie Revere, Engineer and Ada Twist, Scientist written by Andrea Beaty. David Roberts has been fascinated by the suffragists since his school days, and his illustrated history of the fight for women's suffrage is a real passion project.
