Product Description

About the Author

Born to Count Henry de la Pasture and his novelist wife, Delafield (1890-1943) was brought up according to strict Late Victorian precepts, but failing to ensnare a husband, she entered a convent in Belgium the moment she was 21. Having recovered from this experience she became a VAD, (voluntary nursing for the war effort) and wrote her first novel. Delafield started publishing in her mid twenties and the year her fourth novel Consequences was published, she married Paul Dashwood, a civil engineer turned land agent; three years in Malaya was followed by life in rural Devon. Many of her novels and short stories are semi-autobiographical or stem from her experiences living abroad and in the rural countryside.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
These novels of E. M. Delafield are dated, splendidly dated. It's like an anthropologist discovering a new tribe. The books are calm, clear and lucid - the writing style is also from a past age, thank goodness, or the miserable lives of the people in them would be terribly depressing, whereas in fact one reads with a slightly morbid curiosity. However, having said that, there are still plenty of women today whose lives are obsessed by the need to find a husband, or a second or third husband. But we should thank heaven fasting that if we don't find that elusive man, the modern single life is a great deal better than it was in Delafield's time.
