About this quote:
Penelope Fitzgerald (born December 17, 1916) was a star at university and expected to become a writer immediately, but war, marriage, and children got in the way. She published her first book, a biography of painter Edward Burne-Jones, when she was 58. Four years later, she was awarded the Booker Prize for Offshore, a novel set on a houseboat.
