This first full length Jean Rhys biography, published in 1985, is the least judgemental and perhaps the one Rhys may have preferred, considering her famously private nature. Differing from later, more personalised works (interestingly, by female authors), this man's analysis of Rhys's literature leans more towards the academic than the journalistic.

Less for the 'commercial' readership, then, this is ideal student material. Yet as a more formal framing, this is equally perfect for diehard Rhys
