Her early novel Jerusalem the Golden, which is reprinted as a Penguin Modern Classic, deserves to be as well read as its predecessor The Millstone. In many ways it can be read as a riposte to The Millstone, the book which really made Drabble's name, and for which she is still, perhaps, best known; the story of a well-heeled young woman, Rosamund Stacey, who has an illegitimate child and chooses not to marry.

Jerusalem the Golden is a novel by Margaret Drabble published in 1967, and is a winner of the James Tait Black Memorial Prize in 1967

Jerusalem the Golden is a novel by Margaret Drabble published in 1967, and is a winner of the James Tait Black Memorial Prize in 1967. Jerusalem the Golden resembles a number of autobiographical elements: like Clara, Drabble grew up in Yorkshire, was the middle of three sisters, and some of the characters resemble family members. Mrs Maugham is "based on maternal grandmother.

This is the story of five generations of a Jewish family living in Jerusalem.

These are some good stories for children, however. the young children to whom I was reading, needed something less advanced.
