Fairbairns, Zoe

feminist family fate

Fairbairns, Zoe

(British, 1948– )

Zoe Fairbairns, born in Kent and educated at St Andrews University, Scotland, writes consistently from a feminist perspective, but in a number of different genres. Here Today (1984), winner of the 1985 Fawcett Book Prize, is a pacy, contemporary thriller about a temp secretary bent on discovering the fate of a missing office worker. Fairbairns' other novels are equally readable and thought-provoking, and include Stand We At Last (1983), a family saga highlighting the development of feminism in the twentieth century, and Benefits (1979), a futuristic political novel about the likely fate of a feminist revolution.
