Product description

Review

No novelist brings more telling observation or more gentle pleasure. -- Jilly Cooper An alert miniaturist ... her novels have a distinctive flavour, as instantly recognisable as lapsang tea * Daily Telegraph * Quartet in Autumn is immeasurably her finest work of fiction * Evening Standard * A spare masterpiece of loneliness in retirement * Telegraph * Very funny and keenly observant of the ridiculous as well as the pathetic in humanity * Financial Times * The wit and style of a twentieth century Jane Austen * Harpers & Queen * Barbara Pym has a sharp eye for the exact nuances of social behaviour * The Times * Barbara Pym's unpretentious, subtle, accomplished novels . . . are for me the finest examples of high comedy to have appeared in England during the past 75 years...spectacular * Sunday Times *
