Barbara Pym: An Unsuitable Attachment | Naistenviikkohaaste 2021

’Reading, were you?’ Rupert picked up the book which lay one the little table by the fire. It turned out to be the poems of Tennyson, bound in green morocco. Could she really have been reading that? he wondered, looking around for the novel stuffed behind a cushion.’Yes, but I was just going to make […]

Barbara Pym: A Few Green Leaves | Naistenviikkohaaste 2021

There was a general air of relief to be safely back indoors, for the party to begin ’properly’. A quick glance round the room told Emma that it was not a very interesting gathering, or at least it did not look to be, for most of the people standing round, clutching glasses of sherry or […]

Paula Byrne: The Adventures of Miss Barbara Pym | Naistenviikkohaaste 2021

Pym found Oxford ’intoxicating’. In no small part this was because she suddenly found herself the centre of male attention and, like many girls from single-sex schools, she was ready to enjoy being in the company of young men. As with her heroine, Miss Bates, in her third published novel Jane and Prudence, the male […]

Barbara Pym: The Sweet Dove Died

It was a relief to return to normal life again and to get through New Year’s Eve, with its feeling of sadness. The days began to lengthen and the first signs of spring appeared. In the meantime social life had started up again, by which Leonora meant her ’new’ social life with Humphrey and James. […]

Barbara Pym: Quartet in Autumn

Letty and Marcia began a more leisurely tidying up. They did not speak of or break into gossip about the two men, who were accepted as part of the office furniture and not considered worthy of comment unless they did something surprisingly out of character. Outside, the pigeons on the roof were picking at each […]

Barbara Pym: No Fond Return of Love

’I can’t think why you’re so inquisitive. It isn’t as if you’d even met Neville Forbes.’’No, but it’s like a kind of game,’ said Dulcie. It seemed – though she did not say this to Viola – so much safer and more comfortable to live in the lives of other people – to observe their […]

Barbara Pym: Some Tame Gazelle | Naistenviikkohaaste 2020

When we grow older we lack the fine courage of youth, and even an ordinary task like making a pullover for somebody we love or used to love seems too dangerous to be undertaken. Then Agatha might get to hear of it; that was something else to be considered. Her long, thin fingers might pick […]

Barbara Pym: A Glass of Blessings | Naistenviikkohaaste 2020

’Perhaps you will see Piers’s lodgings,’ said Sybil, when I told her of the invitation, so much more respectable than my secret expedition would have been.’Lodgings’ sounder old-fashioned and sordid, and for a moment I felt as if it were wrong to be looking forward to the afternoon so much.’He asked me to have tea […]

Barbara Pym: Less Than Angels | Naistenviikkohaaste 2020

It’s Tom’s thesis,’ said Deirdre in a reverent tone. ‘He’s just given me a copy to read. Look,’ she unwrapped the paper, ‘four hundred and ninety seven pages. How does he do it?’ ‘Well,’ said Catherine, ‘writers of fiction would tell you that one just goes on and on until one reaches page four hundred […]

Barbara Pym: Jane and Prudence | Naistenviikkohaaste 2020

Jane realized from Nicholas’s laugh and the uncomfortable silence that followed that she ought not to have spoken. ’I wonder whether a cup of tea would help us to see things in better perspective,’ she said quickly. ’I will just go and see Mrs Glaze about it,’ she added, hurrying from the room.’A cup of […]

Barbara Pym: Excellent Women | Naistenviikkohaaste 2019

Perhaps there can be too much making of cups of tea, I thought, as I watched Miss Statham filling the heavy teapot. We had all had our supper, or were supposed to have had it, and were met together to discuss the arrangements for the Christmas bazaar. Did we really need a cup of tea? […]
