    About "Norah Lofts"

    1. Norah Lofts

      Also published using the pseudonyms Juliet Astley and Peter CurtisNorah Lofts, n e Norah Robinson, 27 August 1904 10 September 1983 was a 20th century best selling British author She wrote over fifty books specialising in historical fiction, but she also wrote non fiction and short stories Many of her novels, including her Suffolk Trilogy, follow the history of a specific house and the residents that lived in it.Lofts was born in Shipdham, Norfolk in England She also wrote under the pen names Peter Curtis and Juliet Astley Norah Lofts chose to release her murder mystery novels under the pen name Peter Curtis because she did not want the readers of her historic fiction to pick up a murder mystery novel and expect classic Norah Lofts historical fiction However, the murders still show characteristic Norah Lofts elements Most of her historical novels fall into two general categories biographical novels about queens, among them Anne Boleyn, Isabella of Castile, and Catherine of Aragon and novels set in East Anglia centered around the fictitious town of Baildon patterned largely on Bury St Edmunds Her creation of this fictitious area of England is reminiscent of Thomas Hardy s creation of Wessex and her use of recurring characters such that the protagonist of one novel appears as a secondary character in others is even reminiscent of William Faulkner s work set in Yoknapatawpha County, Mississippi Norah Lofts work set in East Anglia in the 1930s and 1940s shows great concern with the very poor in society and their inability to change their conditions Her approach suggests an interest in the social reformism that became a feature of British post war society.Several of her novels were turned into films Jassy was filmed as Jassy 1947 starring Margaret Lockwood and Dennis Price You re Best Alone was filmed as Guilt is My Shadow 1950 The Devil s Own also known as The Little Wax Doll and Catch As Catch Can was filmed as The Witches 1966 The film 7 Women was directed by John Ford and based on the story Chinese Finale by Norah Lofts.
