About the Author

Stevie Smith was born Florence Margaret in 1902. When she tried to publish a volume of poems, she was told to 'go away and write a novel'. This was the result. She died in 1971.


The British-born Smith published several volumes of poetry and three novels during her lifetime (1902-71), including this 1936 title. It relates the story of protagonist Pompey Casmilus, a secretary who writes her thoughts down on yellow office paper. Note that a limited number of copies will be reprinted on yellow paper.

A more individual talent than Stevie Smith's you don't get. An artist of utmost sophistication... Her pre-war Novel on Yellow Paper is an unforgettable work that has nevertheless needed to be rediscovered several times since the day it was first greeted, correctly, as a masterpiece - Clive James, the New Yorker
