January 2020 Discussion The Bookshop by Penelope Fitzgerald



From Wikipedia:

Quote:
"The Bookshop catches Fitzgerald coming into top form" said Peter Wolfe in Understanding Penelope Fitzgerald (2004). Wolfe held the book to be a fully realized work of fiction that confirms the author's hold on actuality and the cogency of her satire.

In a 2010 introduction Frank Kermode noted that the novel won Fitzgerald "the respectful attention of reviewers and the admiration of a larger public".
