The forward by Hazel Holt explains how and why this manuscript, written inwas laid aside and only published in As Holt says: "It is more purely funny than any of her later novels.
So far, everyone who has read the manuscript has laughed out loud--even in the Bodleian Library. I can't imagine living in the kind of claustrophobic, gossip-filled town she describes, but much as I would hate living in that time and place, I enjoyed my visit. View all 6 comments.
