The Last of the Shackdwellers

The Last of the Shackdwellers

The evocative, illuminating autobiography of one of Britain’s best-loved novelists.

Lena Kennedy was sixty-four before her first novel, MAGGIE, was accepted, and it was among the shackdwelling community of the woods that she began to realise her growing need to express her feelings through writing. THE LAST OF THE SHACKDWELLERS examines the inspirations for each of her novels, such as the bestsellers EVE`S APPLES and LILY, MY LOVELY. Lena also vividly describes the long search for a publisher, her joy at finding success and her road to fame.
