Jean Rhys

Jean Rhys (1894-1979) was a novelist, the daughter of a Welsh father and a Creole mother. Her first four novels were published during her twenties and thirties, but it was not until the publication of Wide Sargasso Sea[?] in the 1960s that she enjoyed real fame. The book is a "prequel" to Charlotte Bronte's novel, Jane Eyre.
