An Unsuitable Attachment
by Barbara Pym
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a charming novel about a librarian in a London parish and the people who are her neighbors in that community. It was full of excellent quotes and funny observations about the world. I especially liked the observations about what a clergyman's wife "ought" to do and say and how Sophia was such a contrast to those ideas.
I had never heard of Barbara Pym until earlier this week when The Indextrious Reader brought her to my attention in a post about the Week of Pym event at My Porch in honor of the 100th anniversary of Pym's birth.
