Editorial Reviews

Review

“Brisk, bright, sly, engaging . . . a pleasure to read.” —Chicago Tribune
 
“Margery Sharp has done it again! Witty, clever, delightful, entertaining.” —The Denver Post
 
“Amusing, deftly handled.” —Kirkus Reviews
 
Praise for Margery Sharp
“Sharp has a touch all her own when it comes to taking on social class, sex and its consequences, and the changes that the 20th century brought to both those arenas, most especially for women. She remained, always, both polite and biting, looking at the intoxications and delusions of life and love with wit and clear-eyed sympathy.” —The New York Times

“One of the most gifted writers of comedy in the civilized world today.” —Chicago Daily News
 
“Highly gifted . . . a wonderful entertainer.” —The New Yorker
 
“[Sharp’s] dialogue is brilliant, uncannily true. . . . She is an excellent storyteller.” —Elizabeth Bowen
 
“It is as natural for Miss Sharp to be witty as for a brook trout to have spots.” —The Saturday Review of Literature
 

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.
