A good offer from The Book People of three books by Barbara Comyns for £4.99. Six years ago I’d never heard of Barbara Comyns. Then I bought a copy of Sisters by a River in my local Oxfam shop (now closed) and was hooked. Now, Barbara Comyns is suddenly everywhere. There’s an extra offer from TBP: free postage, today only, on orders over £10.00, code STARS.
