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.
I love the cover page of the Japanese edition of Rosemary Sutcliff’sThe Light Beyond the Forest. Intriguingly, of course, to this British reader, the cover is ‘at the back’ of the book. Not at all what Japanese lovers of the books of Rosemary Sutcliff in their own language would think.
