Welcome to this site about Brigid Brophy. 


I am Kate Levey,

her daughter. You can find me at:

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 versatility means her legacy is too large to capture comprehensively, so this site offers merely an appetiser to her oeuvre.


There is growing interest in all aspects of Brophy’s life and work, and I’m
particularly pleased that in 2020 Faber reissued Brophy’s fiction masterpiece
The Snow Ball.


When Anna is kissed by a masked figure at a masquerade ball, a heady dance of seduction begins … 


‘A witty, sexy, sophisticated treat’ (Sarah Waters);

‘So original and refreshing’ (Hilary Mantel)


2023 is set to be an exciting year for Brophy admirers and for new readers alike. 


Keep an eye out for news!
