In her heyday, Brigid Brophy was a widely-known novelist, literary critic and social commentator. She was a polemicist who set out the case for homosexual equality and the rights of animals; she also campaigned successfully for authors to be paid Public Lending Right.
Brophy’s genre- defying versatility and the sweep of her achievements makes it hard to succinctly
capture her legacy. Her Wikipedia page gives a clear reflection of her life and work:
Following on from its reissue of The Snow Ball in 2020, Faber has published a new edition of
Hackenfeller’s Ape, Brigid Brophy’s debut novel. The volume has a cleverly designed cover; a
Foreword by Sarah Hall, and Brophy’s text is as pertinent today as ever.
