Product Description

Book Description

From the author of Cork Street, Next To The Hatter's

Book Description

Toby is a very plausible young scoundrel: good at winning confidences — and also at staving off troublesome emotions. On the point of leaving Cambridge, he meets Maisie, who is beautiful, tense and vulnerable. She falls in love. He does not. He takes what he can, as young men do. But Maisie tries to force the issue, and he makes off — warned by a friend’s disastrous shotgun marriage. There will always be other girls, more cheerful and just as willing . . . And Toby never worries about minor problems like the way separation wounds its victim. The bitter surprises still in store disconcert him only briefly. After all, a good listener will always get by. ‘With her characteristic mixture of sense and sensibility, Pamela Hansford Johnson creates a whole gallery of convincing characters, entangled in a web of drifting relationships.’ Sunday Telegraph ‘Beautifully rendered . . . memorable settings and lively characters’ Financial Times ‘The light shining steadily through each page of Pamela Hansford Johnson’s new novel is the light of quality’ The Times ‘A stunning performance’ Nina Bawden, Daily Telegraph

A very good, well written book. The characters are totally believable and the story, although gentle, keeps the reader entertained and interested to the end. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

This was ordered because I had another book by this author. " The burnt out case" This was as good. A keen observer of the human condition. .Well written.

The first of the three stories of Toby Roberts and his friends from Cambridge in the late 1950's makes evocative reading to those of a certain age, and must seem like another world to the you get generation!!! Charming, well written (of course!) and eminently readable. Hugely enjoyed!

A cleverly constructed book about a new world of lower middle-class people getting higher education - and what they do with that. No great events but characters revealed realistically through their choices.

I'm working my way through these old Pan representations and discovering this author is a joy. This novel is a kind of Room At the Top set in a higher echelon. Very good. On to the sequel !
