Barbara Pym (1913-80) was born in Shropshire and educated at St Hilda's College, Oxford
Barbara Pym (1913-80) was born in Shropshire and educated at St Hilda's College, Oxford. When in 1977 the TLS asked critics to name the most underrated authors of the past 75 years, only one was named twice (by Philip Larkin and Lord David Cecil): Barbara Pym. Her novels are characterised by what Anne Tyler has called 'the heartbreaking silliness of everyday life'. Библиографические данные. No Fond Return Of Love Virago Modern Classics. They entered the church, taking hymn-books and prayer-books from a shelf by the door. There were not many people there, so it was easy to choose a seat at the back. A middle-aged man, wearing a hearing-aid, was sitting two rows in front of them. He must have heard or sensed their entrance, for he looked quickly round at them, and when Dulcie had got up from saying a quick prayer, she was disconcerted to find that he had disappeared. Nor was she reassured when some instinct made her turn round and she saw him now sitting behind them.
Part of Barbara Pym’s genius lays in the minutely observed everyday situations of her upper middle class characters, we may never have lived.
I already had an idea that No Fond Return of Love, (along with Jane and Prudence) – was my favourite Pym, I’m now convinced of it. Shortly after her engagement is broken off, Dulcie Mainwaring attends a conference at a girl’s boarding school in Derbyshire. Clustered together are a strange group of scholars, indexers and proof readers. Part of Barbara Pym’s genius lays in the minutely observed everyday situations of her upper middle class characters, we may never have lived their lives, yet somehow they are peculiarly recognisable. There is a delicious dry humour to Pym’s writing that is comforting and subtly profound.

Earlier in the year, I had a lot of fun with Barbara Pym’s much-loved novel, Excellent Women (1952). The protagonist in No Fond Return (1961) is Dulcie Mainwaring, a r-old spinster who works as an indexer and proof-reader from her home in the London suburbs.
Novelist Barbara Pym was born in Shropshire and educated at Oxford University. After the publication of No Fond Return of Love (1961), all her books were out of print until she was cited, coincidentally by both David Cecil and Philip Larkin, as among the most underestimated novelists of the 20th century. She subsequently completed two successful novels, The Sweet Dove Died (1978) and Quartet in Autumn (1978), the latter a comic-pathetic study of two men and two women in their sixties who work in the same office but lead separate, lonely lives outside.
I started reading Barbara Pym's No Fond Return last week, but put it aside in favour of another book - any book, quite frankly. Jilly Cooper and Philip Larkin can only be flattering a fellow author when they claim that Pym is comparable to, or indeed better than, Jane Austen
I started reading Barbara Pym's No Fond Return last week, but put it aside in favour of another book - any book, quite frankly. Jilly Cooper and Philip Larkin can only be flattering a fellow author when they claim that Pym is comparable to, or indeed better than, Jane Austen. That could only be the case for people who prefer reading about middle-aged, middle class spinsters in 1950s England, over the timeless wit and insight of Austen's limited oeuvre.
Barbara Pym is, for me, one of the best writers that I have ever read. So the next time I was at the library, I picked up one of her books: "No Fond Return of Love. She has a way of making every day life in little British towns seem so interesting and enthralling that I never want to leave. This book sounds like it should be a romance novel, and is-sort of.
