Editorial Reviews

Review

“[Sharp’s] combination of interior life and social reality makes for what may be her greatest portrait in Britannia Mews, her novel of life on a disreputable London street from 1875 through to the Blitz; the book is a love letter to London and Londoners, and the central character, Adelaide, is an extraordinarily distinct creation, determined and definite in her passions, her actions and her ambitions.” —The New York Times

“As an artistic achievement . . . first-class, as entertainment . . . tops.” —The Boston Globe

“Every page of Britannia Mews is guaranteed entertainment.” —The Philadelphia Inquirer
 
“Brilliantly told and full of humor that seldom misses a trick.” —The Saturday Review of Literature
 
“Fascinating . . . written with great ease and frequent charm.” —Boston Herald
 
“Full-blown . . . richly incisive . . . sheer delight.” —New York Herald Tribune
 
“A first-rate novel.” —John P. Marquand
 
Margery Sharp [has an] unfailing charm, vividness, and gift for making her people live.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Highly gifted . . . a wonderful entertainer.” —The New Yorker
 
“One of the most gifted writers of comedy in the civilized world today.” —Chicago Daily News

About the Author

Margery Sharp is renowned for her sparkling wit and insight into human nature, both of which are liberally displayed in her critically acclaimed social comedies of class and manners. Born in Yorkshire, England, Sharp wrote pieces for Punch magazine after attending college and art school. In 1930, she published her first novel, Rhododendron Pie, and in 1938, married Maj. Geoffrey Castle. Sharp wrote twenty-six novels, three of which—Britannia Mews, Cluny Brown, and The Nutmeg Tree—were made into feature films, and fourteen children’s books, including The Rescuers, which was adapted into two Disney animated films.
