Product description


Depth and subtlety ... The comedy is exuberant. --The Scotsman, September 2, 1960

Miss Duncan is that rare creature, a born teller of stories. Add to this heaven-sent gift a mind as sharp as a scalpel, an uncommonly noticing eye for the absurd, pitiful and wilful eccentricities of human beings, and a very remarkable ear for the speaking voice. --Sunday Times, September 11, 1960

Her characters clamour to be heard.
--Times Literary Supplement, October 7, 1960

About the Author

Jane Duncan made publishing history in 1959 when she had seven novels accepted by Macmillan. She had written them secretly while living in Jamaica with her partner. When he became seriously ill, she was driven by money worries to send one to a London agent. It was the start of the internationally successful My Friends series which eventually ran to nineteen titles.

Jane Duncan was born Elizabeth Jane Cameron in Renton, Dunbartonshire, in 1910, the daughter of a policeman, and grew up in the Glasgow area. But the place she regarded as her `real home' was her grandparents' croft on the Black Isle, and it was to the Black Isle that she returned in 1959, after her partner's death in Jamaica. She lived there until her death in 1976 and is buried at Kirkmichael churchyard.
