Rose Tremain is a contemporary novelist and short-story writer whose first book was a history of the feminist movement in Britain. She teaches creative writing, and she has also published fiction for young people, and plays for radio and television. Her novels (some of them by most definitions historical, though this is a term she detests) aim to take her readers to places where she cannot literally go herself, sometimes to witness great events or experience shifts in the human condition presented from the off-centre viewpoint of characters whom most would think inconsiderable.
