Product Description

Barbara Pym (1913-80) was born in Shropshire and educated at St Hilda's College, Oxford. When in 1977 the TLS asked critics to name the most underrated authors of the past 75 years, only one was named twice (by Philip Larkin and Lord David Cecil): Barbara Pym. Her novels are characterised by what Anne Tyler has called 'the heartbreaking silliness of everyday life'.

INTRODUCED BY PAUL BINDING

'I'm a huge fan of Barbara Pym' Richard Osman

'I'd sooner read a new Barbara Pym than a new Jane Austen' Philip Larkin


Dulcie Mainwaring is always helping others, but never looks out for herself - especially in the realm of love. Her friend Viola is besotted by the alluring Dr Aylwin Forbes, so surely it isn't prying if Dulcie helps things along? Aylwin, however, is smitten with Dulcie's pretty, young niece. And perhaps Dulcie herself, however ridiculous it might be, is falling, just a little, for Aylwin. Once life's little humiliations are played out, maybe love will be returned, and fondly, after all . . .

'One of her very best - comic, heartrending, brave; in short, like life itself' Shirley Hazzard

'No novelist brings more telling observation or more gentle pleasure' Jilly Cooper

'Pym has a unique eye and ear for the small poignancies and comedies of everyday life . . . [her novels] are miniatures, perhaps, but will not diminish' PHILIP LARKIN
