Book Description:

*Another delightful comedy of manners from Barbara Pym.

From the Back Cover:

'She is the rarest of treasures; she reminds us of the heartbreaking silliness of everyday life' Anne Tyler

In a provincial university town Caro Grimstone, a dissatisfied faculty wife, becomes the unwilling accomplice to her husband Alan's ambitions. When she volunteers as a reader to a blind, esteemed anthropologist in a nursing home, Alan seizes the opportunity to steal his papers - research that could both advance his reputation while refuting the findings of a respected colleague. A delightful comedy of manners with a touch of mystery, An Academic Question is prime Barbara Pym territory.

'Authentic Pym, with the true depth of exuberance in it . . . As readable and characteristic as any in the Pym canon' John Bayley, London Review of Books
