LESS THAN ANGELS

BARBARA PYM    Book Number: 91883    Product format: Paperback

Catherine Oliphant is a writer and lives with handsome anthropologist Tom Mallow. Their relationship runs into trouble when he begins a romance with student Deirdre Swann, so Catherine turns her attention to the reclusive anthropologist Alaric Lydgate who has a fondness for wearing African masks. Added to this love tangle are the activities of Deirdre's fellow students and their attempts to win the competition for a research grant. John Updike said 'Her best [novels] are sheer delight, and all of them companionable, quiet, paradoxical, funny and sad, they have the iron in them of permanence too.' A celebration of our national silliness, the course of true love or academia never did run smooth. 262pp, paperback.
