Angela Lambert

(Angela Maria Lambert)
UK (1940 - 2007)

Angela Lambert was a British journalist, art critic and author, best known for A Rather English Marriage.

Born as Angela Maria Helps to a civil servant and a German-born housewife. She was unhappy when sent to a girls' boarding school in Sussex, where by the age of 12 she had decided that she wanted to be a writer. She went to St Hilda's College, Oxford, where she read politics, philosophy and economics. She began her career as a journalist in 1969, working for ITN before joining The Independent newspaper in 1988.

Lambert suffered multiple immune disorders and hepatitis C (caught from a blood transfusion) which led to cirrhosis of the liver. Having survived a critical illness in February 2006, she never quite recovered, and became increasingly disabled. She lived in London and France (having bought a house in the Dordogne in 1972). She is survived by Tony Price, her partner of 21 years, and by her son and two daughters.
