Works By
Lucille Iremonger published articles in periodicals, an exotic cookery book, travel and autobiographical works, novels, an anthology, and in particular historical biographies and studies of psychology. Having grown up in Jamaica, she sometimes wrote about the Caribbean, but from the time she settled in England late in the Second World War her work became more and more English in flavour.
Milestones
1919 Lucille Parks (later LI) was born, the eldest of her family, near Port Royal in Jamaica, where her mother's family had lived for generations, originally as slave-owning planters. Bibliographic Citation link.
1984 LI's final work, Orphans of the Heart (though described as a novel by Contemporary Authors) is actually a study of child psychology, as evidenced in the early years of celebrities. Bibliographic Citation link.
By 20 January 1989 LI died after a serious illness. Bibliographic Citation link.
