About the Author

Pamela Hansford Johnson was born in London in 1912. She was educated at Clapham County Secondary School and the Societe Europeenne de Culture, and then took up teaching appointments at a number of universities abroad, including Wesleyan and Yale. In 1950 she married CP Snow. Her first novel, This Bed Thy Centre, was published in 1935, inaugurating a long and varied career as a published author of fiction, essays and plays. Her other books include the 'Dorothy Merlin' trilogy (The Unspeakable Skipton, 1959; Night and Silence, Who is Here, 1962; and Cork Street, Next to the Hatter's, 1965), The Humbler Creation (1959) and The Good Listener (1975), and works of criticism on Thomas Wolfe and Ivy Compton-Burnett. In 1975 she received the CBE.


"One of the best novels in English since 1939." --Anthony Burgess, author, A "Clockwork Orange"
"Set in the 1960s, at a moment of interface between the past and the recognizably modern world, this exquisitely controlled novel is driven by terror of the social fragmentation that would come once a commonly held belief in damnation . . . ceased to exert its moral hold."" --The Guardian"
"I think the peculiar force of An Error of Judgement derives from the fact that the truths she wants to tell are not only psychological but in some sense religious . . . A remarkable craftswoman, arranging her scenes and images with an unassertive wit and economy." --A. S. Byatt, author, "Possession"
