For award-winning, internationally-acclaimed author Rosemary Sutcliff (1920-92). By Anthony Lawton: godson, cousin & literary executor. Rosemary Sutcliff wrote historical fiction, children's literature and books, films, TV & radio, including The Eagle of the Ninth, Sword at Sunset, Song for a Dark Queen, The Mark of the Horse Lord, The Silver Branch, The Lantern Bearers, Dawn Wind, Blue Remembered Hills.
Rosemary Sutcliff, interested in the bawdy when the mood took her, would surely have shared The Guardian newspaper’s chief arts writer Charlotte Higgins’s delight in getting published an article about 18th century poetic dildos! (But as a Telegraph reader she would have seen it only if alerted by Guardian reader such as I!)
