Probably Pym's most famous novel 'I'd sooner read a new Barbara Pym than a new Jane Austen' Philip Larkin

About the Author

Barbara Pym 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 Pym was named twice. Her novels are characterised by what Anne Tyler has called 'the heartbreaking silliness of everyday life'. She died in 1980.

Reviews

'One of the finest examples of high comedy' Lord David Cecil 'I don't think I've ever before recommended a novel as one that everybody will enjoy and yet - even with a certain assurance - I'm prepared to vouch for EXCELLENT WOMEN' Marghanita Laski, OBSERVER 'I pick up her books with joy, as though I were meeting an old, dear friend who comforts me, extends my vision and makes me roar with laughter' Jilly Cooper
