Born in 1891, Jameson became politically engaged during her studies at Leeds and King's College, joining The Eikonoklasts, who were sceptics, unavowed anarchists, dedicated to the unmasking of hypocrites. Jameson published 45 novels and many other works, including the two-volume memoir Journey from the North. As the Second War approached, she became the first female president of International PEN, and was instrumental in the escape of various writers from German-occupied Europe. Jameson died in 1986, and her work has been cited as influential by such modern writers as Jeanette Winterson and Zadie Smith.
