You'll Enjoy It When You Get There free pdf AN NYRB CLASSICS ORIGINAL Elizabeth Taylor is finally beginning to gain the recognition due to her as one of the best English writers of the postwar period, prized and praised by Sarah Waters and Hilary Mantel, among others. Inheriting Ivy Compton-Burnett s uncanny sensitivity to the terrifying undercurrents that swirl beneath the apparent calm of respectable family life while showing a deep sympathy of her own for human loneliness, Taylor depicted dislocation with the unflinching presence of mind of Graham Greene. But for Taylor, unlike Greene, dislocation began not in distant climes but right at home. It is in the living room, playroom, and bedroom that Taylor stages her unforgettable dramas of alienation and impossible desire. Taylor s stories, many of which originally appeared in "The New Yorker, " are her central achievement. Here are self-improving spinsters and gossiping girls, war orphans and wallflowers, honeymooners and barmaids, mistresses and murderers. Margaret Drabble s new selection reveals a writer whose wide sympathies and restless curiosity are matched by a steely penetration into the human heart and mind."

About Elizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth Taylor (1912 1975) was born into a middle-class family in Berkshire, England. She held a variety of positions, including librarian and governess, before marrying a businessman in 1936. Nine years later, her first novel, "At Mrs. Lippincote s," appeared. She would go on to publish eleven more novels, including "Angel" and "A Game of Hide and Seek" (both available as NYRB Classics), four collections of short stories (many of which originally appeared in "The New Yorker," "Harper" s, and other magazines), and a children s book, "Mossy Trotter," while living with her husband and two children in Buckinghamshire. Long championed by Ivy Compton-Burnett, Barbara Pym, Robert Liddell, Kingsley Amis, and Elizabeth Jane Howard, Taylor s novels and stories have been the basis for a number of films, including "Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont" (2005), starring Joan Plowright, and Francois Ozon s "Angel" (2007). Margaret Drabble is the author of eighteen novels, including "The Needle s Eye," "The Peppered Moth," "The Seven Sisters," "The Sea Lady," and most recently, "The Pure Gold Baby." Among her works of nonfiction are biographies of Arnold Bennett and Angus Wilson. She has edited the fifth and sixth editions of the "Oxford Companion to World Literature" and was made a Dame of the British Empire in 2008."
