Betty Miller (1910-65), author of Persephone book no. 14 Farewell Leicester Square, is the subject of this week’s post. Eighty years ago this spring her third novel, Portrait of the Bride (1935), was printed and wrapped in the iconic yellow jacket of Victor Gollancz. In the 1930s Gollancz also published the novels of Susan Glaspell, Joanna Cannan, RC Sherriff, Elizabeth Jenkins and Lettice Cooper as well as books by Daphne du Maurier, Claire Leighton and Vera Brittain.
