A very enjoyable book from an author that I hope to read more of.

You'll be entertained, and at the same time able to comprehend the highest levels of academia and writing from Dr. Solow's incredible prose."
Catherine Nagle
Harrison Solow's creative genius is apparent, and cleverly cloaked in her genre-defying novel Felicity & Barbara Pym.
Jules Jacob

This book is certainly not out of print. As the publisher I can assure readers it's still in the finishing stages of editing and is due for release in May 2010 - and that has always been the target date. It's well worth the wait. This is an extraordinary book, an innovative epistolary creative nonfiction, introducing readers not only to the works of Pym in accessible style with great wit, but also to the peculiarities of Englishness, with something to say about Americanness along the way.

Just love this book!! Having read all of Barbara Pym's novels and still craving more, this book enabled me to revisit Miss Pym's delectable assortment of caracters.
Ms. Solow's writing is witty and clever and she( or alter ego Mallory Cooper) delves into the caracters exposing layers that had escaped me or that I had seen in a different light. Her knowledge of English customs (loved the chapter on tea!) and idiosyncrasies makes you want to get on the first flight to the English countryside.
A very enjoyable book from an author that I hope to read more of.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a brilliant journey into the mind and soul of a witty and wise intellectual who, through a series of letters, tries to inspire a love of Barbara Pym's literature in a reluctant student, Felicity. Solow's no nonsense Professor Mallory (who has much in common with the author) is a force to be reckoned with. She is frank, funny and highly engaging. I finished the book wishing she might appear in a one-woman show on Broadway. You will laugh, ponder and, if you're like me, probably end up reading Barbara Pym after enjoying this fabulous book.
