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.
