TOP 500 REVIEWERon 2 December 2013
Set before and during World War 2, this has more than a passing similarity to Ms Comyns' better known work 'Our Spoons came from Woolworths'. Single mother, going off to work as a housekeeper, financial difficulties but magical times too...
The narrator, Catherine, has an ambiguous relationship with the rather 'spiv' like Mr Fox. He rescues her from her financial predicament, but the pressure of her young child Jenny makes their life together problematic, especially once Mr Fox is called up to work in a factory ('making jigs I think it was called, but it wasn't anything to do with dancing').
Written in Ms Comyns' individual, quirky style I really enjoyed it.
