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).

Based on a 1983 novella by British horror author Susan Hill that had previously served as the basis for a long-running West End stage drama, the first "Woman in Black" movie mined surprising riches from its rather familiar tale of a foggy, boggy British coastal town haunted by a vengeful spirit with a yen for funereal couture and for the souls of innocent young children (payback for the loss of her own young son decades prior).
