A real delight,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Greenery Street (Persephone book) (Paperback)
Mackail writes about Ian and Felicity Foster, a newly married couple in 1920's London, and more importantly their first year of married life in a charming house in Greenery Street. This wonderful Persephone publication is just delicious, light, frothy, romantic and hopeful. There is nothing taxing whatsoever about this read. It is funny and utterly charming. If you like Nancy Mitford or Evelyn Waugh, this is in the same era and style but without any of the cynicism or darkness of the other two. Apparently there are two other books by him about the same couple and I am now waiting eagerly to see if Persephone will publish those too.
