Barbara Taylor Bradford
A talent for storytelling has made Barbara Taylor Bradford one of the richest women in Britain. Her first novel, A Woman Of Substance, has sold more than thirty million copies around the world.
Adored by her fans and ignored by the critics, Bradford's books feature strong women overcoming life's slings and arrows. Does that make her a de facto feminist, or a peddler of escapist fantasy? She talks to Stephen Sackur.
