Here you’ll find an intriguing mix of fiction, memoir, and graphic nonfiction. One of the novels is by an internationally acclaimed Irish author. Another is by “the other Elizabeth Taylor,” a British author whose writing career unfortunately began just as the American Elizabeth Taylor came to fame in Hollywood. Her novels are considered to be a well-kept secret.
A British author named Elizabeth Taylor published much admired books in the mid-20th century. At the same time, the legendary American actress Elizabeth Taylor won world-reknowned fame, obscuring the author's literary name recognition. New York Review Books recently reissued two of the author's novels, "Angel" and "A Game of Hide and Seek." I read the latter, considered by some to be one of Taylor's best.
