CIVIL TO STRANGERS


CIVIL TO STRANGERS

BARBARA PYM    Book Number: 91879    Product format: Paperback

The last of Barbara Pym's writings to be published, there are four short stories dating from the late 1970s establishing her 'voice' and including a meeting with an old love who doesn't remember you. The Radio Talk is charmingly modest and tells about her influences from Aldous Huxley, Ivy Compton Burnett, Jane Austen and Trollope. The volume contains the early novel Civil to Strangers, the three novellas and this autobiographical essay 'Finding A Voice', her only written comment on her writing career. The novel is about the lives of a young couple Cassandra Marsh-Gibbon and her self-absorbed writer husband Adam, thrown into upheaval when a mysterious Hungarian arrives in their village. 385pp, paperback.
