Just love MPD writing, and this really brings to life what was going on in London at this time. Have to remember that it was written for an American readership so the word diapers is used instead of nappies for example. Have not finished the book as yet but am enjoying it in bite sized chunks.

Molly Panter-Downes has left us with a wonderfully vivid account of World War 2 seen from a civilian perspective. She was a young mother who had published some poetry and was asked by the New Yorker to provide a 'letter from London' giving its readers a realistic taste of what life was like during the war. She painted an honest and positive picture and this book, with its down-to earth outlook, brings us back to those extraordinary times.

This falls very much into the category of the diaries kept for Mass Observation - like Nella Last's and everyone who enjoyed those will like this book.
