Elizabeth Taylor () is increasingly recognised as one of the best British writers of the twentieth century. She wrote her first book, At Mrs Lippincote's, during the war while her husband was in the Royal Air Force, and this was followed by . 8 The Middle Age of Mrs Eliot by Angus Wilson A librarian in the British Museum, Wilson’s novel won the James Tait Black Memorial Prize. 9 At Mrs Lippincote’s by Elizabeth Taylor Taylor was a governess, teacher and librarian – At Mrs Lippincotes was her debut novel in 10 Eagle in the Snow by Wallace Breem.

  Her best novels - At Mrs. Lippincote's (), A View of the Harbour (), A Game of Hide and Seek () - are, in spite of their prim titles, funny, savage and full of loneliness and suppressed emotion. For her characters, as for their author, propriety is a survival mechanism, a way of keeping the show on the road -- Rachel Cooke * Guardian *Pages: Schmutztitel oder Vorsatz können fehlen. Einband bzw. Schutzumschlag weisen unter Umständen starke Gebrauchsspuren auf. / Describes a book or dust jacket that has the complete text pages (including those with maps or plates) but may lack endpapers, half-title, etc. (which must be noted). Binding, dust jacket (if any), etc may also be worn.

The debut novel from Elizabeth Taylor - shortlisted for the Booker Prize * Mrs Lippincote's house, with its mahogany furniture and yellowing photographs, stands as a reminder of all the certainties that have vanished with the advent of war.   The tank is an emblem of state power, a behemoth that has transformed wars and threatened – and sometimes mown down – civilians. But it has also been seen as a ‘cubist slug’, has inspired a modernist song and dance routine Tanko, has led military men to philosophize, and installation artists to appropriate the rhomboid shape to suggest the ultimate in urban alienation.
