Posy Simmonds is the author and illustrator of many books for adults and children, including Literary Life, Lulu and the Flying Babies, and Fred - the film of which received an Oscar nomination. Her style gently satirises the English middle classes and in particular those of a literary bent. Her published books often feature a 'doomed heroine', much in the style of the 18th- and 19th-century gothic romantic novel, to which they often allude, but with an ironic, modernist slant.
