Alethea Hayter (1911-2006)

"Back -- due to popular demand" Guardian Review, 3 May 2008 [Writers discuss which books they would consider ordering through the "on demand" service offered by Faber and Faber called Faber Finds].

Julian Barnes chooses two works by Alethea Hayter (1911-2006): A Sultry Month (1965), which he describes as, "a brilliant recreation of a few weeks in London literary life in 1846, which is highly original in its form and narrative cross-cutting" and Horatio's Version (1972), "the report of a court of inquiry into events at Elsinore: as interesting a reworking of the play as Tom Stoppard's more famous version".
