By 2001 BB had published sixteen novels, written in an almost bald style which exploits her satiric eye for ordinary domestic life and for unexpected melodramatic interruptions of it. Many of her later novels are historical. She also wrote short stories, travel or topographical books with a hint of social studies about them, a newspaper column, and plays for both stage and television.
