The Real Mrs Miniver

£12.99

Product description

If you don't already know Mrs Miniver, the idea of this happily married, upper-class wife and mother, going about her pre-war round of London dinners and country-house parties, might sound paralysingly dull and indeed insufferably smug. Mrs Miniver purchases an engagement diary! Mrs Miniver recruits a charlady! Mrs Miniver ponders the acquisition of a new motor car! How trivial and spoilt, you might think. And so it would have been, were it not for the remarkable observational gift and radiant humanity of Mrs Miniver's creator, Joyce Maxtone Graham, alias Jan Struther.

Condition: Minor staining to boards, otherwise very good.
