From the Back Cover:

Emma Howick, an aspiring anthropologist, chooses to settle in a sleepy country community in the heart of England, with a view to researching a study on ‘The Social Patterns of a West Oxfordshire Village’. She soon finds herself inextricably caught up in the lives of her new neighbours: Tom Dagnall, the widowed rector who is passionate about local history; Tom’s dominating and frustrated sister, Daphne, whose ambitions are to own a dog and escape to a Greek island; Adam Prince, a fastidious and self-indulgent good food inspector; Sir Miles, the elusive local squire; and last but not least, the genteel spinsters, Misses Lee, Grundy and Lickerish.

In 'A Few Green Leaves', Barbara Pym chronicles everyday life with her inimitable warmth and humour, creating an incomparable, vivid portrait of English village society.

“Her sense of humour is as strong as ever. The set pieces are as witty, or wittier, than anything she has ever written.”
FINANCIAL TIMES

“Miss Pym’s characters are human and warm and vulnerable ... they establish themselves immediately, they stay in the mind. This is a book to be taken slowly and easily ... there are epiphanies in it, showings-forth of joy.”
SUNDAY TELEGRAPH

“She has a connoisseur’s eye for the absurd, almost disconcerting candour, and the ability to note shortcomings with amused equanimity.”
THE LISTENER

Also available in Flamingo: 'Civil to Strangers', 'The Sweet Dove Died' and 'Quartet in Autumn'.

About the Author:

Barbara Pym, who died in 1980, spent the last years of her life in an Oxfordshire village, sharing a small cottage with her sister. Between 1950 and 1961 she published six novels. After a gap of sixteen years, publication of ‘Quartet in Autumn’ in 1977 was treated as a major literary event, as was her next novel, ‘The Sweet Dove Died’. Four more novels were published posthumously, as was ‘Civil to Strangers’, a collection of writings including one complete novel and sections of three others.
