Product description

Review

[One of] the finest examples of high comedy to have appeared in England during the past seventy-five years. (Lord David Cecil)
A startling reminder that solitude may be chosen and that a lively, full novel can be constructed entirely within the precincts of that regressive virtue, feminine patience. (John Updike, "The New Yorker")
Reading Barbara Pym is . . . a wonderful experience, full of unduplicable perceptions, sensations, and soul-stirrings. ("Newsweek")

Book Description

Probably Pym's most famous novel
'I'd sooner read a new Barbara Pym than a new Jane Austen' Philip Larkin
