About the book
The story of four people in late middle-age who work in the same office and who all suffer from loneliness. With poignant humour, Barbara Pym takes us through their small lives and the facades they erect to defend themselves against the outside world.
Reviewed by Itchen Reading Group
The book is about four office workers approaching retirement and how they cope when two of them actuallt leave; the characters are very well drawn – a little “odd”. Well worth reading – a tragi-comedy.
*** – **** 3 to 4 stars
