INTRODUCED BY LOUIS DE BERNIERES

'I'm a huge fan of Barbara Pym' RICHARD OSMAN

'I'd sooner read a new Barbara Pym than a new Jane Austen' PHILIP LARKIN

Formidable Miss Doggett fills her life by giving tea parties for young academics and acting as watchdog for the morals of North Oxford. Anthea, her great-niece, is in love with a dashing undergraduate with political ambitions. Of this, Miss Doggett thoroughly approves. However, Anthea's father, an Oxford don, is carrying on in the most unseemly fashion with a student - they have been spotted together at the British museum! But the only liaison Miss Doggett isn't aware of is taking place under her very own roof: the lodger has proposed to her paid companion Miss Morrow. She wouldn't approve of that at all.

MEDIA REVIEWS

An entertainment that is funny, poignant, observant and truthful

Pym at her absolute funniest - Daily Mail

The rare charm of Crampton Hodnet is in the glimpse it offers of Pym's imagination as it pauses for a moment in perfect understanding of a character. That sympathy stretches beyond the horizon of comedy - Time

Brilliant, hilarious and so very, very English - Daily Mail

I'd sooner read a new Barbara Pym than a new Jane Austen - PHILIP LARKIN

Barbara Pym is the rarest of treasures; she reminds us of the heartbreaking silliness of everyday life - Anne Tyler

My favourite writer . . . I pick up her books with joy - Jilly Cooper

I'm a huge fan of Barbara Pym - Richard Osman
