She Has No Place in Paradise by Nawal El-Saadawi
Drawing on interviews and previously unpublished letters and documents, the author provides a revealing portrait of the talented group of individuals who produced "Horizon", the premier literary review of the 1940s. Published monthly in Bloomsbury, "Horizon" was eclectic and fiercely independent, edited principally by Cyril Connolly. It featured the works of influential writers such as Elizabeth Bowen, T.S.Eliot, Graham Greene, Henry Miller, Arthur Koestler, George Orwell, Jean-Paul Sartre, Dylan Thomas, Evelyn Waugh and many others. This book attempts to bring to life the colourful individuals who devoted themselves to the magazine, and also provides an account of literary life and literature during World War II.
