Angel by Elizabeth Taylor

Angel by Elizabeth Taylor. 1984 Virago Modern Classic (c/r 1957), 252 pages. Elizabeth Taylor was a celebrated British author who published thirteen novels and many short stories. According to a retrospective in the Guardian, "Her best novels - At Mrs Lippincote's ... are, in spite of their prim titles, funny, savage and full of loneliness and suppressed emotion. For her characters, as for their author, propriety is a survival mechanism, a way of keeping the show on the road." Angel was selected as "one of the best novels of our time" by the British Book Marketing Council.
