Recensioner i media

"Here is a woman of unfathomable depths of meanness and cunning -- a triumph of portraiture, compassionate, witty and assured." * Time and Tide * "Distinctly out of the ordinary, School for Love shows remarkable qualities of force and originality." * Times Literary Supplement * ""Deep, sharp and narrow." That is a phrase which has been applied to some of the finest mathematical analysts: I should like to borrow it to describe Olivia Manning -- This is a remarkable book." * C. P. Snow * "In common with the best writers, Olivia Manning has, besides wit, a sympathetic heart and a barometer-like sensitivity to the vagaries of human behaviour" * Birmingham Post *

Övrig information

Olivia Manning, OBE, was born in Portsmouth, Hampshire, spent much of her youth in Ireland, and, as she puts it, had 'the usual Anglo-Irish sense of belonging nowhere'. The daughter of a naval officer, she produced her first novel, The Wind Changes, in 1937. She married just before the War, and went abroad with her husband, R. D. Smith, a British Council lecturer in Bucharest. Her experiences there formed the basis of the work which makes up The Balkan Trilogy. As the Germans approached Athens, she and her husband evacuated to Egypt and ended up in charge of the Palestine Broadcasting Station. They returned to London in 1946 and lived there until her death in 1980.
