More information

Born at Chichester, Sussex, to Joan Mary Moore, who was of Irish Catholic descent, and Brigadier Henry Alleyne Lash, a British colonial officer, Jennifer Lash lived in India where her father was stationed until the age of 6. When her family returned to England, they settled down in Surrey. Raised a Roman Catholic, Lash attended boarding school at the Convent of the Sacred Heart in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, and continued on to Farnham Art School. When she was 16 years old, her studies were cut short by family problems. She discontinued her education and moved to London where she supported herself with odd jobs to support her artistic pursuits.

In 1962, she published her second book The Climate of Belief and married Mark Fiennes with whom she raised 7 children: actors Ralph Fiennes and Joseph Fiennes, film makers Martha Fiennes and Sophie Fiennes, composer Magnus Fiennes, Jacob Fiennes, a conservation manager, and a foster son, Michael Emery, an archaeologist. The family frequently relocated and lived in Suffolk, Wiltshire, Ireland and London. Lash went on to write four more novels over the next twenty years. They are: The Prism (1963), Get Down There and Die (1977), The Dust Collector (1979) and From May to October (1980).
