Promotional Information

Genteel North Oxford is riven by gossip and scandal in Barbara Pym's exquisitely entertaining comedy. WIth a brand new introduction by Louis de Bernieres.

About the Author

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.'

Reviews

An entertainment that is funny, poignant, observant and truthful. - Louis De BernieresThe rare charm of Crampton Hodnet is in the glimpse it offers of Pym's imagination as it pauses for a moment in perfect understanding of a character. That sympathy stretches beyond the horizon of comedy. - Time
