Biography's Source:

Winifred Bryher was born in England in 1894, the daughter of Sir John Ellerman, prominent industrialist and financier. As a student she spent many holidays in the Scilly Islands, from one of which she was to take the pen name of Bryher. The outbreak of World War I forced her to give up archaeology and she turned to writing instead. She has been married twice, first to the American writer and publisher Robert McAlmon, and, the second time, to Kenneth Macpherson, a Scottish author and authority on the cinema with whom she published the magazine Close Up, devoted to the art of film. Her historical novels have established her as a stylist of first rank among modern writers.
