The biggest problem with this book possibly can t really be helped it assumes the reader a knows a lot about Pym and her work and b knows specifics about her many correspondents For example she has many letters with a Phillip Larkin who turns out to be a major post WWII poet in Great Britain and a fellow who was having affairs with three women at once in the 1970 s Another interesting note about Larkin apparently he an Pym correspond for fifteen years before they meet One of the interesting things this bio reveals about Pym In her book No Fond Return of Love Pym has the heroine researching even following someone in order to learn about him Apparently Pym actually did this with a neighbor of hers whom she then put in a novel One of the most notable issues her life is the way her work went out of print in the early 1960 s publishers no long saw it as commercial but then is brought back to much acclaim in the late 1970 s just before she dies A hardship of the writerartist the art comes when it comes which may or may not be when the people are ready for it Some notable thoughts from Pym and her correspondents BP Novel writing is a kind of private pleasure even if nothing comes of it in worldy terms 250BP Still what does it matter really fame is dust to ashes 246Phillip Larkin bemoans those sudden stabbing memories of absurd or painful moments that one is suffused and excoriated by 231Bob Smith The comedy in her novels demonstrates again and again the happiness and merriment that can be found in the daily round that purchase of a sponge cake about which Jane Austen felt it proper to write to Cassandra 223Phillip Larkin About a new cooker and carpet Already the zestful glow that prompted their purchase is fading With such gewgaws does one get one self through the New Year P 192BP This simple collecting was something perhaps the only thing she could do 174About Denton Welch How tedious the little details seem written down yet it is always that littleness that seems to have banked up behind it great walls of fight and resistance 173As an anthropologist Not even the slightest expression of amusement or disapproval should ever be displayed at the description of ridiculous impossible or disgusting features in custom cult or legend 169BP Even at this moment something dreadful may be happeningsomebody dying languishing with hopeless love or uarrelling about the Church of South India in the Edgware Road 163BP We analyzed the circumstances as to why people had left St Laurence s parish and came to the conclusion that they had been removed by Rome Death and UmbrageUmbrage of course removed the greatest number 153 There was never any uestion of her having a a career like her sister Hilary Any job she took would have to leave a least part of her fmind free to get on with her real work which was writing 138

Read & download A Lot to Ask The Life of Barbara Pym Hazel Holt · 9 Read & download Free read Û E-book, or Kindle E-pub · Hazel Holt Devoted audience of readers beguiled by Barbara Pym's eight elouently understated novels It is a clear percept. A must read book for all readers who like me can t get enough of Barbara Pym It was very interesting to meet the real life inspiration for some of Barbara Pym s most recognizable fictional characters This life which by a superficial evaluation could be considered sad and barren spinster living with her divorced sister working a rather dreary office job was actually full of small joys and pains I had not appreciated how much Barbara Pym was in love with the idea of being in love and how she had fed and maintained some of her impossible infatuations with the type of investigations that we know from Dulcie Mainwaring in No Fond Return of Love The diary and letter excerpts shed light on life during WWII and the dreary decade afterwards Just as I enjoy the miniature vignettes of daily life in Barbara Pym s works so did I enjoy the little peeks into the everyday lives of Barbara Pym and her sister Hilary These are relatively uiet lives compared to the biographies of many male novelists divorces Affairs Shocking feuds with other writers but I enjoyed it
