Mum and Mr Armitage

Mum and Mr Armitage

Women in fox furs, not-quite travelling salesmen, the twilight zone of genteel hotels and lodging houses – these newly reissued short stories are quintessential Bainbridge territory. Blazing with her irreplaceable talent, Mum and Mr Armitage takes us on a journey through a unique fictional terrain; from a country house in Sussex to a script-writing course on a cruise liner. Macabre, witty and brilliantly observed, they confirm Beryl Bainbridge’s place as one of our greatest writers of fiction.
