Biographical notes:

Author, artist, and interior decorator Anna Kavan published early, romantic novels under her real name, Helen Ferguson. She eventually adopted the pseudonym Anna Kavan--taken from the name of one of her own characters--to produce powerful, confessional stories reflecting her own turbulent life, which included emotional and psychological problems, and more than thirty years of heroin addiction.
