British Historical Novelist Beryl Bainbridge

Bainbridge is well known in England, but little known here. She's been shortlisted four times for the prestigious Booker Prize, and twice won the Whitbread Prize for fiction. She's just completed her 16th novel. "Master Georgie" (Carroll & Graff Publishers, Inc.) takes place during the mid 19th century. Bainbridge has been praised for her economic and poetic use of words, and her lack of sentimentality or melodrama.
