Well done Miss Buncle
on 5 December 2008
This book is a sheer delight. D E Stevenson's style is fluent and witty, and congratulations are due to Persephone for re-publishing this forgotten book.
Miss Buncle publishes a book using a pseudonym, and features her neighbours as characters, changing their names but not their temperaments so they are still, in fact, recognisable. The neighbours resent the way they are represented and strive to find out who is the author.
Pacey and funny, this is an excellent read.
