About the Book

'There is quite a Bloomsbury set, is there not?'

'There is,' said Miss Clame, 'but we're not in it. We're just the tiniest bit west, both spiritually and geographically.'

Miss Clame certainly never concealed her limited income nor that she lives with two spinsters, Mavina Trelawny, who nearly climbed Mont Blanc, and Godiva Smith, who coloured pottery, but these were undoubtedly factors preventing her freely declaring her love for Geoffrey Remington.

In this elegant, beautifully written novel, C.H.B. Kitchin explores with wit and compassion the frustrations of genteel poverty.

  • C. H. B. Kitchin

    C. H. B. Kitchin was born in 1895. He read classics at Oxford and, after serving in France during World War I, was called to the bar in 1924.

    His early novels, such as Streamers Waving, were witty and brilliant, with a strong element of fantasy; while his later ones, such as The Book of LIfe, were, in the words of Francis King, 'works of settled and deliberate accomplishment, brimful of diverting characters, incidents and ideas'.
