Stella Dorothea Gibbons was an English novelist, journalist, poet and short story writer.Her first novel, Cold Comfort Farm, won the Femina Vie Heureuse Prize for 1933 A satire and parody of the pessimistic ruralism of Thomas Hardy, his followers and especially Precious Bain by Mary Webb the loam and lovechild genre, as some called it, Cold Comfort Farm introduces a self confident young woman, quite self consciously modern, pragmatic and optimistic, into the grim, fate bound and dark rural scene those novelists tended to portray..
