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.See all Product description

In my 20's Jane Duncan was my favourite author; I started to re-read her books recently and enjoyed them just as much in my 60's so was thrilled to find that two books had been reprinted. I am now buying them for other people and hope they enjoy them as much as I do.
