RIP Elizabeth Jane Howard

I was sorry to hear that Elizabeth Jane Howard has died. It was cheering to know that a ninety-year-old woman was still alert, writing (and smoking!), even though she needed live-in help. The obituaries are full of her marriages and love life (colourful) and of Cazalets (not her only novels). I absolutely love the Cazalet series, as you can see here and I’m on the library waiting list for the last instalment, All Change. Elizabeth Jane Howard was a well known writer long before the Cazalets appeared. Try After Julius and Odd Girl Out.
