Betty and Emanuel Rottingdean 1938

By popular demand: more photographs of our authors on the Post this week. This is Betty Miller (1910-65) in Rottingdean with her husband Emanuel in 1938. Her novel Farewell Leicester Square (1941), PB No. 15, is about a Jewish film-maker in London in the 1930s but begins in Sussex; Alec Berman grows up on the Western Road in Hove, dreaming of working on film sets whilst his brother plays in the arcades on the Brighton Pier. One of Betty Miller’s grandsons has written a new memoir, so you can read more about some of her descendants in the Observer here. (Betty and Emanuel had a daughter, Sarah, and a son, the opera director Jonathan Miller).
