Sue Townsend

Standard Name: Townsend, Sue
Birth Name: Susan Lilian Johnstone
Writing in the later twentieth century, ST turned a satirical eye on social structures like the British class system, but her writing always had the aim of making people laugh. She began as a dramatist and went on to novels, journalism, and political writing, while never more than a step away from comedy.
