About the Author

Djuna Barnes was born in Great Britain and moved to New York in 1911, where she briefly studied at the Pratt Institute of Art. In the 1920s she moved to Paris, where she lived and worked amongst the literary-expatriate community until she moved back to New York. She is the author of The Antiphon, Ladies Almanack, Nightwood, and Ryder. Rebecca Loncraine is a former research fellow at the Rothermere American Institute at the University of Oxford.
