Writer of 'a girls' guide to the struggle'

2008-08-11 00:00

ANNA Trapido was born in Britain and grew up in Oxford where her father, Stanley Trapido, who died earlier this year, was a historian and her mother, Barbara Trapido, is a well-known novelist. Both were born in South Africa, but left the country in the early sixties to make their lives overseas.

She thinks that perhaps it is because her parents were homesick at the time she was born. Her younger brother is English and settled, but Trapido says that she feels very at home here, and very foreign anywhere else.
