Excellent Women - Barbara Pym


Excellent women, excellent novel. Somehow I've missed Barbara Pym up to now but, thanks to the ever-generous Becks, I am now initiated into the witty, slightly bitter cause. It's one of those books that might be very deep or not deep at all but it's certainly entertaining. (Disclaimer: my grandmother-in-law happened to be reading it at the same time and wasn't keen on the story because her experience of women's lives at the time it was written was quite different to that portrayed.)
