The realism of this novel [Manservant and Maidservant] like the realism of all Dame Ivy's novels goes far beyond verisimilitude to some psychologically consistent truth that transcends words.
-- Constance Lewis
Ivy Compton-Burnett (1892-1969) wrote over fifteen novels about the upper classes of the late Victorian period. The novels are constructed almost entirely of seemingly banal dialogue that eventually reveals, beneath its surface, the truths of human nature and insights into human relationships which Compton-Burnett took as her themes. Her works include Pastors and Masters, A Family and a Fortune, Manservant and Maidservant, and A House and Its Head.Diane Johnson's most recent novel is Lulu in Marrakech.
