Margery Sharp spent part of her childhood in Malta.
In 1938, she married Major Geoffrey Castle, an aeronautical engineer.
She began her writing career as a contributor to Punch, and became a prolific author in her long career, producing 26 novels for adults, 14 children's books, 4 plays, and numerous short stories.
Rebecca Rose Cepeda says on her website: Sharp is best known for her books for children, yet her books for adults showed the same talent for storytelling. In addition to “a wry and lovely humor” as described by one reviewer, “a scrupulous sense of order and an unashamed love of the human race” emerge in this diverse collection of novels.
For the reader who relishes the sparkle of English wit, the tingle of truth in a delicately phrased irony, or a kindly but piercing stare into the dynamics of personality, then Margery Sharp is a delightful discovery. If you are drawn to the social complexities of a weekend at a country house -- you'll find it in the pages of Margery Sharp. If you love eccentric characters, they are here -- from Mrs. Pomfret, the Misses Pye and the curious Mr. Porrit to the incomparable Betty Cream.
While her literary output is generally considered light, even comic fiction, she wrote from a unique perspective and time in history that can provide us with a fascinating snapshot of the changing times, morals, and landscape of Britain during the post World War I era.
