Product Description

Review

Mrs Harris is one of the great creations of fiction - so real that you feel you know her, yet truly magical as well. I can never have enough of her

About the Author

Paul Gallico was born in New York City, of Italian and Austrian parentage, in 1897, and attended Columbia University. From 1922 to 1936 he worked on the New York Daily News as sports editor, columnist, and assistant managing editor. In 1936 he bought a house on top of a hill at Salcombe in South Devon and settled down with a Great Dane and twenty-three assorted cats. It was in 1941 that he made his name with The Snow Goose, a classic story of Dunkirk which became a world-wide best-seller. Having served as a gunner's mate in the U.S. Navy in 1918, he was again active as a war correspondent with the American Expeditionary Force in 1944. Paul Gallico, who later lived in Monaco, was a first-class fencer and a keen sea-fisherman. He wrote over forty books, four of which were the adventures of Mrs Harris: Mrs Harris Goes to Paris (1958), Mrs Harris Goes to New York (1959), Mrs. Harris, M.P. (1965) and Mrs Harris Goes to Moscow (1974). One of the most prolific and professional of American authors, Paul Gallico died in July 1976.

I have read and loved other Paul Gallico and Mrs Harris novels and think of them as beautifully written 'comfort' reading. Mrs Harris is a char from Battersea, she often becomes involved in little intrigues which she solves with her common sense and no-nonsense attitude.

This time, unbeknown to her, she becomes embroiled in a political plot and inadvertently gets elected to Parliament!

This is a typically gentle story but I did hate to see my beloved Mrs Harris miserable and out of her depth. Thank goodness there was a happy ending!

I have read Paul Gallico's other novels. I like the character of Mrs Harris and she reminds me of a actress in the b/w films from Ealing film studios.

Ideal to read before falling asleep as it has a 'feel good' and hopefully would not keep one awake at night as in reading a thriller/horror etc.

Wonderful to re-visit these appealing little stories. Although certainly not politically correct in today's terms, the stories are sweet representations of their times...
