The new Furrowed Middlebrow books



In August, Dean Street Press will bring out another batch of Furrowed Middlebrow titles, books written by women and published around the middle of the last century. The new selection is: E.H. Young's Miss Mole, A House in the Country by Ruth Adam, Much Dithering by Dorothy Lambert, Miss Plum and Miss Penny by Dorothy Evelyn Smith, and two by Celia Buckmaster: Village Story and Family Ties. The only one of these I’d read before is Miss Mole, which I have in an old Virago edition. The one I most wanted to read, because I already liked the author, was luckily the other book I was sent: A House in the Country by Ruth Adam.
