The Times
This comedy of manners is a salutary reminder of just how good Barbara Pym was . . . This book is a gem
Shirley Hazzard
There is a thrill of humanity through all her work
Richard Osman
I'm a huge fan of Barbara Pym
Philip Larkin
I'd sooner read a new Barbara Pym than a new Jane Austen
Anne Tyler
She is the rarest of treasures; she reminds us of the heartbreaking silliness of everyday life
Jilly Cooper
Over the years, as Barbara Pym replaced Nancy Mitford, Georgette Heyer, even Jane Austen, as my most loved author, I devoured all her books, but Jane and Prudence remains my favourite. Even an umpteenth reading this weekend was punctuated by gasps of joy, laughter, sympathy and wonder that this lovely book should remain so fresh, funny and true to life
