Barnes, Margaret Ayer


Barnes, Margaret Ayer
(1886-1967)
   Margaret Ayer was born in Chicago. In 1925, needing something to do while recovering from an automobile accident in France, she began writing her novels and short stories. Her two plays, Jenny (1929) and Dishonored Lady* (1930), were written with Edward Sheldon, who had then been immobilized by paralysis. Barnes also dramatized Edith Wharton's Age of Innocence (1928), and won the 1931 Pulitzer Prize for her novel Years of Grace.
