Buy books by Pamela Frankau

British novelist; daughter of the novelist Gilbert Frankau and granddaughter of Julia Frankau (who wrote under the name of Frank Danby).  Her best known novel is A Wreath for the Enemy (1954) in which the events of one night transform what appears at first to be a typical adolescent crisis into a prolonged struggle for self-definition on the part of the novel's teenage protagonist. In part autobiographical, Frankau clearly identified with her lead character who is presented as a writer in development.
