One thought on “Stella Gibbons’ Cold Comfort Farm

  1. “F R Leavis, who famously only approved of one woman novelist in the whole nineteenth century, and that was Jane Austen”
    Not quite, he also approved of George Eliot. The only nineteenth century male novelist he approved of – Henry James – wasn’t British until the end of his life.
