Review

Spark writes with a light comic touch, but there's an undertone of a kind of existential desperation.--Patrick T. Reardon

Synopsis

This is London 1945, when all nice people are poor. Muriel Spark sets us down among the girls of good family but slender means as they fight it out, from their Kensington hostel to the last clothing coupon until this charmingly light-hearted period in their lives descends into horror and tragedy.
