Witty wartime reminiscences,
This review is from: Good Evening, Mrs Craven: The Wartime Stories of Mollie Panter-Donnes (Persephone Classics) (Paperback)
I heard about this book just before I set out on a three week holiday so bought it. These are very well written short stories written during the Second World War in England for the New Yorker magazine. They portray various scenarios affected by the stresses of wartime from a woman's point of view. There are very different situatons the women are in, but all stories are extremely well observed and written in a clear and sophisticated way.
I am not sure how a young generation would take to it, but the quality of the writing is top class.
