Quick Reference


British novelist, born in Brighton, Sussex. Her best‐known novel is Berg (1964), the story of a young man who travels to an English seaside resort in order to murder his father. Like Three (1966), Passages (1969), and Tripticks (1972), it is unorthodox in form, owing more to the French nouveau roman than the English social realist novel. Quin's lifelong struggle against depression ended in her suicide at the age of 37.
