Biografia breu
Penelope Fitzgerald (1916-2000), laureatasi ad Oxford nel 1939, ebbe varie esperienze di lavoro e di vita, fra l'altro il giornalismo e la storia dell'arte. Iniziò a scrivere opere narrative all'età di sessant'anni. Quasi tutti i suoi romanzi hanno vinto premi prestigiosi fra cui il Booker Prize. Penelope Fitzgerald definiva i suoi romanzi «microchip novels», romanzi in miniatura, scherzando sulla concisione alla quale tutti sono improntati, e che è diventata un po' il suo marchio di fabbrica; a proposito di uno di essi Auberon Waugh, critico famoso per la sua ferocia, dichiarò che per la prima volta nella sua carriera si sorprendeva a pregare una donna di scrivere non di meno, ma di più. Presto diventata popolarissima, la Fitzgerald era stata salutata fin dal debutto come «a writer's writer», un autore per autori, in quanto l'economia e la precisione del suo stile, la salda organizzazione del suo estro, la secchezza del suo umorismo, e la competenza sfoggiata in qualunque argomento ella affronti, sono particolarmente apprezzati da chi se ne intende.
