From Wikipedia:

"Alice Thomas Ellis (1932-2005) was a British writer and essayist. She was the author of numerous novels, and also of some non-fiction, including cookery books. Although her married name was Anna Haycraft, she is best known by her nom-de-plume. Ellis was half-Finnish, half-Welsh and spent part of her childhood as an evacuee in North Wales, a period she wrote about in A Welsh Childhood. Her best-known novel was Unexplained Laughter (1985), which was adapted for British television, and her novel The 27th Kingdom (1982) was shortlisted for the Booker Prize. Her Home Life column in The Spectator was published in four volumes. Her work was enlivened by a dry, dark sense of humour. One of her most famous witticisms is: "There is no reciprocity. Men love women. Women love children. Children love hamsters. Hamsters don't love anyone"..."
