Penelope Mortimer was a Welsh-born English journalist and novelist. Many of her stories are semi-autobiographical and tended to explore the emotional impact of failing marriages and the loneliness of women trapped in domestic prisons. In the 60s Mortimer and her husband, John, were considered one of London’s most fashionable and radical couples.
