Hill, Susan


Born Feb. 5, 1942, in Scarborough. British writer.

Hill graduated from the University of London in 1963. Although her first novels, including The Enclosure (1959), went unnoticed by the critics, she won recognition with Gentlemen and Ladies (1969), A Change for the Better (1969), and other works. Following the traditions of the realistic school of psychological prose, Hill indirectly reflects social problems, for example, in the novel Bird of Night (1972). Chekhovian nuances are evident in Hill’s masterly works of short fiction, for example, in the collection The Albatross and Other Stories (1970).
