Entry updated 11 December 2023. Tagged: Author.

(1934-2023) US author, in UK from the 1950s, who mostly wrote historical novels, initially for Young Adult readers and later for adult audiences. Of sf interest is The Vandal (1979), an early example of the future Dystopia whose adolescent protagonist is banned from a central oppressive City, in this case a culture where enforced Amnesia intensifies the tyranny. The protagonist's act of vandalism opens his eyes to the true world. The novel won the 1980 Guardian Children's Fiction Prize. [JC]
