On The Nightstand: Autumn

Flowers of September

Just a couple for the upcoming Autumn Equinox...

Literary, Art, England | Published: 2016 | Goodreads

Daniel is a century old. Elisabeth, born in 1984, has her eye on the future. The United Kingdom is in pieces, divided by a historic once-in-a-generation summer.

Love is won, love is lost. Hope is hand in hand with hopelessness.

The seasons roll round, as ever...

Quartet in Autumn
by Barbara Pym
Literary, Classics, London | Published: 1977 | Goodreads

In 1970s London Edwin, Norman, Letty and Marcia work in the same office and suffer the same problem - loneliness. Lovingly and with delightful humour, Pym conducts us through their day-to-day existence: their preoccupations, their irritations, their judgements, and - perhaps most keenly felt - their worries about having somehow missed out on life as post-war Britain shifted around them.
