i have a feeling i have already reviewed this book but anyway it is so funny in parts and always entertaining.
used copy which was in excellent condition and very reasonably priced.

These stories really evoke the social atmosphere of wartime England, though they tend to focus on the upper middle classes - people who still expect to have servants and send their children away to school.

Lovely , sometimes gentle, sometimes cutting. Wish the author had written more. Have passed it to friends to read and they have all enjoyed it.

Wonderful stories, beautifully written. It's easy to see why Mollie Panter-Downes was the New Yorker's London correspondent for so many years.

As a lover of short stories, I really enjoyed this excellent collection of reminiscences of war time. A very entertaining writer!

This was ok. It was a selection for our book group but it was not my cup of tea. I don't usually read short stories for all the reasons I didn't enjoy this i.e. no character development, weak story line etc etc
