Product description


Brought together by their shared office life, faded Letty, small, wiry Norman, eccentric Marcia and devout Edwin, are an unlikely group of friends, but nevertheless find themselves drawn to discuss their different dreams and plans for the future. This book was shortlisted for the Booker Prize.

From the Back Cover

Barbara Pym’s sensitive wit and artistry are at their most sparkling in 'quartet in Autumn'. Brought together by their shared office life, fluffily faded Letty, small, wiry Norman, enigmatically eccentric Marcia and neatly devout Edwin, are an unlikely group of friends. Apart from work, they have little in common, but nevertheless find themselves frequently drawn to discuss their very different dreams and plans for the future…

‘Quartet in Autumn is immeasurably her finest work of fiction’
PAUL BAILEY, 'Evening Standard'

‘Very funny and keenly observant of the ridiculous as well as the pathetic in humanity.’

‘An alert miniaturist… her novels have a distinctive flavour, as instantly recognisable as lapsang tea.’
