Lyhyt elämäkerta
Sylvia Townsend Warner, born at Harrow on the Hill in Middlesex, England, was an only child who was educated at home, and she became an accomplished musician at a young age. At the outbreak of World War I, she went to work in a munitions factory in London, and began to write fiction. In 1930, she bought a cottage in the village of Chaldon Herring in Dorset, where she lived with poet Valentine Ackland for the rest of her life. During her career, Sylvia produced seven novels, including Lolly Willowes (1926), Summer Will Show (1936), The Corner that Held Them (1948), and The Flint Anchor (1954); four volumes of poetry; a volume of essays; and eight volumes of acclaimed short stories; as well as a biography of T.H. White. The Diaries of Sylvia Townsend Warner, published after her death, contain vivid thoughts and reactions to the events of the London Blitz and World War II in general. She also translated Proust's Contre Saint Beuve into English.

Got close to 10% but DNF

So many characters, so much rewinding trying to find a foothold in the story, that I paused it and spaced out instead of continuing. Now, upon further research, I'm going to let it go.

[a:Sylvia Townsend Warner|32349|Sylvia Townsend Warner|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/authors/1329513169p2/32349.jpg] has written a beautifully crafted tale of a 19th C wealthy, landed and slightly smug Englishwoman who spurns her adulterer husband, loses her children from smallpox and flees to France. There she finds herself stretching her feminist inklings to forge a new life with her husband's ex-mistress and embraces the revolution of 1848 happening around her. As Minna, her new companion, says "Though you may think you have chosen me..or chosen happiness,it is the revolution you have chosen." My commonplace book at the ready, there were abundant quotations to jot down, some outright humorous, but mainly the clear thinking and revolutionary story of a woman's transformation which propel the reader along. Townsend Warner was a contemporary of Woolf and Mansfield and equal to them in her writing. We read this book for a book club and the conversation flowed hither and yon.… (lisätietoja)
