More About the Author

Angela Thirkell (1890-1961) wrote many works of fiction and non-fiction, including twenty-nine 'Barsetshire' novels, which won her great popularity and acclaim. The first of these, High Rising, was published in 1933. Her relatives included Edward Burne-Jones, Rudyard Kipling and Stanley Baldwin, and her godfather was JM Barrie. She was twice married and had four children.

Product Description

Review

Angela Thirkell is perhaps the most Pym-like of any twentieth-century author, after Pym herself (Alexander McCall Smith)

What sings out is the ebullience and charm of her characters, deliciously sparkling dialogue, a romping plot, her wit and gentle satire, and the escapist satisfaction of neatly tied-up happy endings (bookoxygen.com)

Book Description

A captivating comic novel from Angela Thirkell's much-loved 1930s Barsetshire series: trainee barrister Colin Keith makes an ill-advised foray into teaching at Southbridge School.

I thoroughly enjoyed this Angela Thirkell novel depicting another slice of life of the 'gentry' of the 1930s. The characters are well drawn - bossy, confident Lydia and Kate, who takes delight in mending and home making. No women's libbers here!Tony Morland from 'High Rising' makes another appearance and we find out about life in his public school. Settling with a Thirkell is a truly enjoyable, calming experience. I love her books!
