INTRODUCED BY LOUIS DE BERNIERES

'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 to young academics and acting as watchdog of the morals of North Oxford. Anthea, her great-niece, is in love with a dashing upper-class undergraduate with political ambitions. Of this, Miss Doggett thoroughly approves. Anthea's father, however, an Oxford don, is tired of his marriage and carrying on in the most unseemly fashion with his student Barbara Bird - they have been spotted together at the British Museum! Miss Doggett isn't aware, though, that under her very own roof the lodging curate 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 -- Louis de Bernieres
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
