Thanks to Laura M. for lending me this delightful book. A collection of short stories written by Mollie Panter-Downes for the New Yorker during World War II, examining the British domestic side of the war. Full of rich characters. Some of the stories made me laugh, some touched a nerve, but every one was a delight. The preface by Gregory LeStage is a bit dry. I've always thought that if I ever wrote a book, and some scholar wrote a preface 50 years later, I'd be surprised to learn about the influence other writers had on my style or the symbolism hidden deep in the book.
