Personal life and career
Huth is the daughter of the actor Harold Huth. She left school at age 16 in order to paint and to study art in both France and Italy. At 18 she travelled, mostly alone, across the United States before returning to England to work on a variety of newspapers and magazines. She married the journalist and travel writer Quentin Crewe in the 1960s and with him had a daughter, Candida. She presented programmes on the BBC, including How It Is and Why and Man Alive.
She is now most recognised as a successful writer. She has written three collections of short stories and eleven novels. Her novel, Land Girls (1995), was a best-seller and was made into a 1998 feature film, The Land Girls starring Rachel Weisz and Anna Friel. A 2010 sequel was called Once a Land Girl. Both are about the land girls – British women who worked on farms during World War II while the men were fighting the war.
She also writes plays for radio, television and stage, and is a freelance journalist, critic and broadcaster. Her play The Understanding ran at the Strand Theatre in 1982 and starred Ralph Richardson and Joan Greenwood.
Huth recently edited a collection of eulogies, Well-Remembered Friends, including Seamus Heaney on Ted Hughes, Martin Amis on Kingsley Amis, and Alan Bennett on Peter Cook. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.
She has been married to a don, James Howard-Johnston, since 1978. They live in Warwickshire and have one daughter, Eugenie Teasley.
