  Lynne Reid Banks Friday 27 February 2004  
Author Lynne Reid Banks
This week's Woman's Hour serial is the L-Shaped Room by Lynne Reid Banks. First published in 1960, its realistic and tender depiction of a pregnant unmarried woman was groundbreaking at the time.

Lynne Reid Banks joins Martha to talk about what it meant to the women who read it then, and what is its enduring quality today.
