  1. He wrote such solid, worthy books that seem to reflect the mood of the time. I’ve recently encountered The Crowthers of Bankdam by Thomas Armstrong and Howard Spring’s Fame is the spur which share that image of “a book you can get your teeth into.” They must have been a blessing for readers who could only get to the library once a week at most. Jacquetta Hawkes’ intelligence is much sharper and clearly, if this book is anything to go by, more self-critical.
    Thank you for the recommendation to the bookshop as well – how enterprising!
