Never before published, the lost novel by the bestselling author of Cold Comfort Farm.
     Creepy. Peculiar. Fairy. Goblin. Liar. Weirdo. Crank. Genius.
     No one knows what to make of Juliet Slater, not even her mother. And clothes, boys, school, friends, the changing seasons and what other people think - none of these things seem to matter to Juliet. She spends hours in her room with incomprensible mathematical text books, her mind voyaging in strange seas of thought, alone. Is she a genius? It might take the rest of her life to find out. 
     While Stella Gibbons was celebrated for her beloved bestseller Cold Comfort Farm, the manuscript for Pure Juliet lay unseen and forgotten until it was brought to light by her family in 2014, and is published here for the first time in Vintage Classics. A tale that travels from an eco-millionaire's British country idyll to an Arabian Nights-style fantasy of the Middle East, this is a treat for fans of this witty, curious and always surprising author.

Her first publication was a book of poems The Mountain Beast (1930) and her first novel Cold Comfort Farm (1932) won the Femina Vie Heuruse Prize for 1933. Amongst her works are Christmas at Cold Comfort Farm (1940) Westwood (1946), Conference at Cold Comfort Farm (1959) and Starlight (1967). She was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature in 1950. In 1933 she married the actor and singer Allan Webb. They had one daughter. Stella Gibbons died in 1989.

Review:

"Fans of the acclaimed British author, described as the "Jane Austen of the 20th century" will be delighted that the existence of two never-before-published novels have been revealed by her daughter." * Independent * "Stella Gibbons's gift is very special" * Daily Express * "Gibbons was an acute and witty observer, and her dissection of the British class system is spot-on" * Mail on Sunday * "An intriguingly original story." -- Libby Purves * The Times * "Gibbons portrays her heroine with such sensitivity that this young woman and her story prove impossible to resist." -- Sarah Pitcher * Daily Express *
