Short biography
The Times of London wrote in her obituary: "Celia Fremlin used to say that she wrote the sort of book she wanted to read, in which a mysterious threat hangs over someone and escalates chapter by chapter. . . Publishers sometimes treated her novels as mere precursors of the 'woman in jeopardy' genre. . . But Fremlin had an observant wit all her own, highly valued by her friends as well as her readers." Celia Fremlin was born in Kingsbury, now part of London. Her older brother, John H. Fremlin, later became a nuclear physicist. In 1942 she married Elia Goller, with whom she had three children; he died in 1968. In 1985, Celia married Leslie Minchin, a writer and translator. Her novel The Hours Before Dawn won the Edgar Award in 1960. Later in life she became known as an active advocate of voluntary euthanasia.
