Ah, you mention two of my favourite books, and the third,the Wilkie Collins, is one that I really want to read as part of my Cornish reading season! Wonderful :)

Barbara Pym is one of those authors I have meant to get to for years but still have not. Maybe this is the reminder I needed. Glad you enjoyed it.

Verity - the Wilkie Collins is fun, and as you say is partially set in Cornwall. My favourite bit is the London home of the miser and his curmudgeonly servant; a lovely Dickens' style piece of portraiture.

Hi Frances, I have been saying the same for eyars and it took this giveaway copy to gallvanise me. I so wish I started on her earlier. We've been really missing out!

This is the year that I will finally read Barbara Pym (and Iris Murdoch and Nancy Mitford); I know that I'm going to love her as I love Jane Austen.

A Persephone that I don't yet own but will at some point ;).

I also love Wilkie Collins.

Paperback Reader - Nancy Mitford is on my to-do list this year too. Did you hear The Radio4 programme The Write Stuff which had her the featured author?
