Stella Benson (1892-1933) was an English feminist travel writer and
novelist. Stella was noted for being compassionate and interested
in social issues. Like her older female relatives, she supported
women's suffrage. During World War I, she supported the troops by
gardening and by helping poor women in London's East End at The
Charity Organisation Society. These efforts inspired Benson to
write novels I Pose (1915) and This Is the End (1917). She took on
a job at The University of California as a tutor, then as an
editorial reader for The University Press. These experiences
inspired her next work, The Poor Man (1922). Benson's writings kept
coming, but her later works are not well known today. Goodbye,
Stranger was written in 1926, followed by The Man Who Missed the
Bus in 1928 and finally Tobit Transplanted in 1930, which won the
Femina Vie Heureuse Prize.
