Waterstones Says

Another delightful offering from the divinely witty Barbara Pym, A Glass of Blessings finds the frustrated Wilmet Forsyth turn to the local church for solace and companionship. A triumph of comic timing on every page, this is Pym at her sparkling best.       

Wilmet Forsyth is well dressed, well looked after, suitably husbanded, good looking and fairly young - but very bored. Her husband Rodney, a handsome army major, is slightly balder and fatter than he once was. Wilmet would like to think she has changed rather less.

Her interest wanders to the nearby Anglo-catholic church, where at last she can neglect her comfortable household in the more serious-minded company of three unmarried priests, and, of course, Piers Longridge, a man of an unfathomably different character altogether.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The subtlest of her books - the sparkle on first acquaintance has been succeeded by the deeper brilliance of established art.' - Philip Larkin

'[Pym] makes me smile, laugh out loud, consider my own foibles and fantasies, and above all, suffer real regret when I reach the final page. Of how many authors can you honestly say that?' - Mavis Cheek 

'Barbara Pym is the rarest of treasures.' - Anne Tyler

'My favourite writer . . . I pick up her books with joy, as though I were meeting an old, dear friend who comforts me, extends my vision and makes me roar with laughter.' - Jilly Cooper
