Catherine Cookson Novels - Large Hard Covers
About 240mm by 160mm.

I have separate listings for small, for medium & for large

Dame Catherine Cookson, DBE (1906 to 1998) was an English author. She became the United Kingdom's most widely read novelist, with sales topping 100 million, while retaining a relatively low profile in the world of celebrity writers. Her books were inspired by her deprived youth in South Tyneside, North East England, the setting for her novels.

She took up writing as a form of therapy to tackle her depression, and joined Hastings Writers' Group. Her first novel, Kate Hannigan, was published in 1950. Though it was labelled a romance, she expressed discontent with the stereotype. Her books were, she said, historical novels about people and conditions she knew. She later successfully concentrated on people ground down by circumstances, taking care to know them well.
