9780143054894: Modern Classics Leaven of Malice

The following announcement appeared in the Salterton Evening Bellman: "Professor and Mrs Walter Vambrace are pleased to announce the engagement of their daughter, Pearl Veronica, to Solomon Bridgetower Esq, son of...". Although the malice that prompted this false engagement notice was aimed at three people only - Solly Bridgetower, Pearl Vambrace, and Gloster Ridley, the anxiety-ridden local newspaper editor - before the leaven of malice had ceased to work it had changed permanently, for good or ill, the lives of many citizens of Salterton. This is the second novel in "The Salterton Trilogy" (which also includes "Tempest-Tost" and "A Mixture of Frailties").

Product Description:

The announcement of Miss Pearl Vambrace's engagement to Mr. Solomon Bridgetower, with a wedding date set for November 31, has been placed erroneously in the Salterton Evening Bellman, causing its editor and the families of the non-betrothed great distress. In telling this humorous story, narrator Frederick Davidson is highly disdainful of the tribulations of the townspeople... Davidson does the characters well, each with his and her eccentric sounds, but his languid voice suggests he's doing everyone a favor and imparts a tinge of contempt to everything.

From the Back Cover:

This novel by the redoubtable Robertson Davies begins with the following announcement from the Salterton Evening Bellman: "Professor and Mrs. Walter Vambrace are pleased to announce the engagement of their daughter, Pearl Veronica, to Solomon Bridgetown, Esq." Although the malice that prompted the insertion of this false notice was aimed at only three people — a junior English instructor, the subdued daughter of a domineering professor and the anxiety ridden editor of the Evening Bellman — it permanently changes the lives of many citizens of Salterton.
