Praise for Marguerite Steen ‘Miss Steen is a superb manipulator of scene, and she makes her places as alive as her people’ – Daily Telegraph‘Rich and enjoyable’ – The Observer ‘fine scenes and piquant portraits’ – The Sunday Times ‘a vivid narrative’ – Manchester Guardian ‘full of colour and character’ – John o’ London’s Weekly ‘rich, lavish, violent, passionate’ -Evening News Marguerite Steen (12 May 1894 – 4 August 1975) was a British writer. Very much at home among creative people, she wrote biographies of the Terrys, of her friend Hugh Walpole, of the 18th century poet and actress (and sometime mistress to the Prince of Wales) Mary ‘Perdita’ Robinson, and of her own lover, the artist Sir William Nicholson. Her first major success was Matador, for which she drew on her love of Spain, and of bullfighting. Also a best-seller on both sides of the Atlantic was her massive saga of the slave-trade and Bristol shipping, The Sun Is My Undoing. She was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature in 1951.
