I bought my first book by Angela Thirkell donkey’s years ago, probably at a jumble sale. I loved it and since then have managed to acquire all her books, either in hardback or in old Penguin editions. The reason there are so many mentions on my blog is that I so often re-read her books.
For those less lucky, it’s been good news that Virago are republishing Thirkell. The latest reissue, Cheerfulness Breaks In is just out this month. I was shocked to see Amazon reviewers giving the book only one star, but found it was because people buying this for the Kindle have been sent the wrong book! So be warned.
The reason for this post is really to point you at this excellent review of Cheerfulness Breaks In. Just follow the link on the blog.
