Jenny Uglow

From one of our most admired writers, Cyril & Sybil is a beautifully illustrated story of a dynamic artistic partnership between the wars. Jenny Uglow talks to Steven Gale about the story of Sybil Andews and Cyril Power, two artists who both became famous for their dynamic, modernist linocuts, set amid a world of futurists, surrealists, pioneering abstraction and the looming shadows of war.

Jenny Uglow lives in Canterbury. Her books include prize-winning biographies of Elizabeth Gaskell and William Hogarth; Nature’s Engraver: A Life of Thomas Bewick, won the National Arts Writers Award for 2007; A Gambling Man: Charles II and the Restoration was shortlisted for the 2010 Samuel Johnson Prize; The Pinecone tells the story of Romantic visionary Sarah Losh.

Steven Gale has interviewed many eminent authors including Edna O'Brien, Peter Carey, Ben Okri, Claudia Roden, Nigella Lawson and James Ellroy.
