Review:

'Astonishing, amazing. It is like nothing else in the world. It is a work of genius' --The New Statesman

'It's short, funny, and...I would recommend it to those who want to give Ivy Compton Burnett a go, and don't feel up to one of her longer novels. If you like this, there's a lot more to explore - if you don't, at least it has one of Hesperus' beautiful covers!' --Stuck in a Book

Book Description Hesperus Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. "The sight of duty does make one shiver," said Miss Herrick. "The actual doing of it would kill one, I think." Ever anxious to keep up appearances, self-avowed intellectual and scholar Nicholas Herrick knows that to involve himself in the running of his own school would be a condescension too far. Assembling around himself a cast of fittingly fawning friends and aides, he sets about unveiling his final masterpiece.
