Book bargains: Angela Thirkell

bookpeoplethirkell

The Book People have three of Angela Thirkell’s novels for £4.99. Tempting as these pretty covers are, I certainly don’t need the new editions as I already have all her Barsetshire novels. A good opportunity for someone wanting to give Thirkell a go, as you’re unlikely to find her books in a library these days. The blurb says that the books are perfect for lovers of Stella Gibbons, Dodie Smith and Barbara Pym. Pah! Thirkell was a better writer than any of those authors.
