Novelist Elizabeth Jane Howard Dies

Posted at 9:46AM Saturday 04 Jan 2014

The award-winning novelist Elizabeth Jane Howard, who is said to have sparked a love of literature in her stepson Martin Amis, has died at her home in Bungay, Suffolk, after a short illness. She was 90.

Howard won the John Llewellyn Rhys prize in 1951 for her debut novel, The Beautiful Visit. But she is best known for her five-part family saga, The Cazalet Chronicles, which charts the lives of an upper-middle class English family during and after the second world war. The final book in the series was published in November 2013, and the stories have been dramatised on BBC Radio 4.
