Lettice Cooper

-
LC 's writing career spans both sides of the Second World War. Author of twenty novels which deal with human relationships as responsive to the social and cultural conditions of her day, many of them set in the north of England (as well as in Italy), she has generally been regarded as too serious a writer to be termed a regional novelist. She was also well-known as a writer of children's stories and of popular biographies, some of them aimed at a young adult readership.
