‘If she was a bloke, she’d still be in print':
the lost novels of Gertrude Trevelyan


G.E. Trevelyan wrote eight groundbreaking novels between 1932 and 1941. The Times Literary Supplement said: ‘Miss Trevelyan’s scope of human experience makes her one of the most important novelists of our day.’

Her career was cut tragically short when her flat was hit by a German bomb in the Blitz. She died soon afterwards and her books have since been largely forgotten.

Our editor-at-large Scott Pack says in a Guardian feature on this remarkable novelist: ‘If she was a bloke, she’d still be in print today, without question.’

In association with Abandoned Bookshop, we’ve now republished Trevelyan's first novel, Appius and Virginia, hailed by the Spectator in 1932 as a ‘brilliant debut’.
