Literary Estates

In addition to pursuing its primary mission of aiding writers in need, the Authors League Fund manages the literary estates of Djuna Barnes, Vera Caspary, and Gladys Malvern. (The Djuna Barnes estate is shared with Faber & Faber and St. Bride’s Church, both based in London.) For permission to publish or quote from any of these writers’ works, please contact the Authors League Fund.

Books by this diverse trio of authors are widely available. (Unfortunately, all works by Margaret Mayo, our fourth estate author, are out of print.) In addition, 83% of proceeds from sales of the following e-books go to the Fund’s charitable work:
