Some Tame Gazelle

By Barbara Pym

Moyer Bell, Paperback, 9781559212649, 322pp.

Publication Date: March 14, 1999

One of my favorites of Pym's novels, it turns a shrewd, mocking, but always affectionate eye on English country life 30 years ago. Pym's fans will feel completely at home when they step into the Jane Austen-like lives of Harriet and Belinda Bede.- Christian Science Monitor.
