Corner that Held Them by Sylvia Townsend Warner

The Corner that Held Them by Sylvia Townsend Warner. 2007 Virago reprint (c/r 1948), 310 pages. Details life in a convent in the 12th century. According to the New York Times "Warner’s style is delicate and arch, consisting of a gentle skewering of religious ladies that recalls Barbara Pym. Though she teeters on the edge of satire, she lands instead (like Pym or Evelyn Waugh) on poignancy."

Condition: Acceptable. Cover worn, some underlining.
