Barbara Pym

I picked this book up in a charity shop ages ago and after hearing an excellent adaptation of another Pym novel on the radio a few months ago, finally picked it up:

What a charming novel! Her first book, written in 1939 and very much a window into Oxford society of another time but a light and easy read and her wit made me chuckle all the way through. I don't understand why she's not better known, so I'm spreading the word.

  1. I'll have to hunt out "Jane and Prudence" for you! It's such a good read.
