Unsuitable Attachment by Barbara Pym

An Unsuitable Attachment by Barbara Pym. 1982 Dutton, first U.S. edition, 256 pages. Pym was an English novelist, forever forgotten and rediscovered.  In a retrospective in the New York Times: "However remote her themes may seem — a churn of parish politics and petty romances — beneath the gentle surfaces of her novels is a slow-building comedy, salt wit in a saline drip. " Unsuitable was discovered after her death, and was the last book written before her fifteen-year dry spell in the middle of her career.
