From the cover: “Acclaimed for her exquisitely elegant novels — including the Booker Prize-winning Offshore — and superb biographies, Penelope Fitzgerald was one of the finest British authors of the last century. So I Have Thought of You is an unparalleled record of the life of this greatly admired writer.

In these letters, Penelope Fitzgerald is vividly alive. They reveal her most important family relationships and friendships, and paint a clear picture both of herself and of her correspondents. They show us how she managed her own career — according to her own convictions — and how determined she was to put her world view across; how kind she usually was, but how scathing and formidable she could be. They are a fascinating portrait of Penelope Fitzgerald as a mother, as a friend, and as a writer. And they give now the same pleasure they gave to those who first opened them.

All the letters are published here for the first time.”
