Wild Strawberries by Angela Thirkell Carroll & Graf,1989

Before Lunch (VMC)


Love Among the Ruins by Angela Thirkell US edn: Moyer Bell, 1995

There was a sad lack of Dr. Ford, whose encounters with Tony are some of the most pleasing exchanges Thirkell ever wrote (even when the dialogue is limited to “shut up” – such blissful words when directed at Tony). Yes, he appears but never frequently enough for my tastes.

I almost didn’t manage to read the only holiday book I own over the holidays. I woke up Boxing Day morning with the horrible realisation that after months of anticipation, I hadn’t yet picked up Christmas at High Rising by Angela Thirkell. I immediately cast aside the book I had been reading (, a really delightful collection of Maeve Binchy’s writings for the ) because, as you should know by now, nothing will stand in the way of me reading a Barsetshire-set book (except my shoddy memory).

The Old Bank House by Angela Thirkell US edn. Moyer Bell, 1998

If I am honest I want to love Angela Thirkell but can’t quite. I have read three or four and have liked them though found them lighter than I would like. I did enjoy the son in this one I thought he was funny. I have a couple of other Thirkell novels which I have been sitting on for ages and in fact may not read.

As you , Virago will be releasing four Angela Thirkell titles this May: Before Lunch, , Northbridge Rectory, and . The covers for Before Lunch and Northbridge Rectory have now been released and both look lovely.
