Quartet in Autumn, Paperback Book

Description

With an introduction by Alexander McCall SmithOne did not drink sherry before the evening, just as one did not read a novel in the morning.In 1970s London Edwin, Norman, Letty and Marcia work in the same office and suffer the same problem - loneliness.

Lovingly and with delightful humour, Pym conducts us through their day-to-day existence: their preoccupations, their irritations, their judgements, and - perhaps most keenly felt - their worries about having somehow missed out on life as post-war Britain shifted around them.

Deliciously, blackly funny and full of obstinate optimism, Quartet in Autumn shows Barbara Pym's sensitive artistry at its most sparkling.

A classic from one of Britain's most loved and highly acclaimed novelists, its world is both extraordinary and familiar, revealing the eccentricities of everyday life.
