But moved to London at the age of 3 and has lived in the same house ever since, wrote Stevie Smith when asked by an editor for a biographical note. The lack of external events in her life is to many people the best-known thing about her. Yet she was far from reclusive, as this brilliant new biography shows, and was actively involved in the social as well as intellectual life of literary London, with interruptions, from the early 1930s until her death in 1971.
