‘I’d sooner read a new Barbara Pym than a new Jane Austen’ Philip Larkin

Dulcie Mainwearing is always helping others, but never looks out for herself – especially in the realm of love. Her friend Viola is besotted by the alluring Dr Aylwin Forbes, so surely it isn’t prying if Dulcie helps things along? Aylwin, however, is smitten by Dulcie’s pretty young niece. And perhaps Dulcie herself, however ridiculous it may be, is falling, just a little, for Aylwin. Once life’s little humiliations are played out, maybe love will be returned, and fondly, after all . . .
