Fler böcker av Elizabeth Von Arnim

Recensioner i media

A sinister thriller * Independent * [Her books are] a revelation in their wit and... dry, unsentimental treatment of the relationship between men and women -- Barbara Pym Von Arnim didn't have much patience with the male ego, and she didn't have much more for the women who bowed beneath it -- Mike Newell, director of 'The Enchanted April'

Övrig information

Elizabeth von Arnim was born on 31 August 1866 in Australia. She was cousin to the writer Katherine Mansfield. In 1890 she married her first husband, Count Henning August von Arnim-Schlagenthin, a Prussian aristocrat, with whom she had five children. Elizabeth and her German Garden, published anonymously in 1898, was a barely fictionalised account of Elizabeths life and the creation of her garden at the family home of Nassenheide in Pomerania, where Hugh Walpole and E. M. Forster were tutors to her children. Its instant success was followed by many more novels, including Vera (1921) and The Enchanted April (1922), and another almost-autobiography, All the Dogs of My Life (1936). She separated from Count von Arnim in 1908, and after his death two years later she built a house in Switzerland, marrying John Francis Stanley Russell in 1916. This marriage also ended in separation in 1919 when Elizabeth moved to America, where she died on 9 February 1941, aged 74.
