Background Information

Rebecca West was a London-born journalist, novelist, reviewer and essayist who brought a powerful feminist voice to the 20th century. Her greatest work, "Black Lamb and Grey Falcon," an investigation into the nature of war and history structured around a tour of pre-War Yugoslavia, was listed among the most significant books of the 20th century. Time hailed her as "the world's number one woman writer," and she was made Dame of the British Empire in 1959. Several of her novels have been adapted for film, TV and radio, including "The Return of the Soldier," "The Birds Fall Down," and "The Fountain Overflows." Her powerful journalism skills made her the writer New Yorker editor Harold Ross trusted to cover the Nuremberg Trials of Nazi war criminals.
