Claire Tomalin, born of a French father and English mother, worked in publishing and journalism as literary editor of the New Statesman, then the Sunday Times, while bringing up her children. In 1974 she published The Life and Death of Mary Wollstonecraft, followed by books on Shelley, Katherine Mansfield, Mrs Jordan, Jane Austen, Samuel Pepys, Thomas Hardy and Charles Dickens. The Invisible Woman (1990), her study of the actress Nelly Ternan and her relationship with Dickens, was filmed with Ralph Fiennes and Felicity Jones. Her highly-praised memoir, A Life of My Own, was published in 2017.

Michael Frayn was born in London in 1933 and began his career as a journalist on the Guardian and the Observer. His novels include Towards the End of the Morning, Headlong, Spies and Skios. His 17 plays range from Noises Off, recently chosen as one of the nation's three favourite plays, to Copenhagen, which won the 1998 Evening Standard Award for Best Play of the Year and the 2000 Tony Award for Best Play. He is married to the writer Claire Tomalin.
