Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Monica Dickens's first book, published in 1940, could easily have been called Mariana - an Englishwoman. For that is what it is: the story of a young English girl's growth towards maturity in the 1930s. We see Mary at school in Kensington and on holiday in Somerset; her attempt at drama school; her year in Paris learning dressmaking and getting engaged to the wrong man; her time as a secretary and companion; and her romance with Sam. We chose this book because we wanted to publish a novel like Dusty Answer, I Capture the Castle or The Pursuit of Love, about a girl encountering life and love, which is also funny, readable and perceptive; it is a 'hot-water bottle' novel, one to curl up with on the sofa on a wet Sunday afternoon. But it is more than this. As Harriet Lane remarks in her Preface: 'It is Mariana's artlessness, its enthusiasm, its attention to tiny, telling domestic detail that makes it so appealing to modern readers.'

Book Description: Persephone London, 1999. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. 1st Edition. A wonderful new edition of this charming novel, and typical of this brilliant publisher. Each book in their list is exquisitely produced, and most of them offer the reader a new chance to discover an often unjustly neglected writer. This one is a sheer delight, and is offered here in a new copy of the first edition thus. First published in 1940, this edition comes with a fascinating and unique preface by Harriet Lane.
