    I’ve lavished praise on Penelope Lively in the past but I can’t think of anything positive to say about this Anne is married to Don an unimaginative man who likes to get his money’s worth It’s a thoroughly bland marriage I was interested in this marriage than in anything else in this book but Lively skips over it as if it’s somehow normal for two people who barely have anything in common to live wit

    I've become an avid Penelope Lively fan and I dived into this one It was like diving into cool translucent water on a hot day so lucid the prose so calm and unhurried the plot so careful the nudges towards a theme This is known territory middle class middle life middle England Sounds tedious and parochial? What saves it is Lively's understanding of what I'm going to be daring #pretentious and call the 'psychic infrast

    I've been on a recent Penelope Lively binge She's my version of Maeve Binchy Better writer easy to get caught up in her stories I like her female protagonists who are always prickly never goody two shoes and usually acerbic in their judgments of the people around them MOON TIGER will always be my favorite of hers but the others ar
