NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month – occurs annually every November. Join us each week as we celebrate the life of a novelist represented in the University of Maryland Special Collections!
This week’s novelist is Hope Mirrlees. Her fiction includes Madeleine: One of Love’s Jansenists, Lud-in-the-Mist, and Counterplot. Although printed copies of Mirrlees’s work are rare, Lud-in-the-Mist gained more recent popularity as a science fiction novel.
