The Open Door

  • Margaret Drabble


There is much in my early novels about marriage. I got married in June 1960, three weeks after my twenty-first birthday, and just after taking my Cambridge Finals. I married my first love. Then I sat down to write my first novel, A Summer Bird-Cage, while expecting my first baby. So the subject of marriage was much in my mind as I began my career in fiction.
