This morning's post brings four novels by Rose Macaulay- variously purchased secondhand from Amazon, iLibris and eBay. They're all relatively modern paperback editions. It's good to know that her work is being kept in print. |
Or that some of it is. Certain titles remain very hard to find. Ailz suggests a holiday in Hay on Wye- secondhand bookshop capital of the world- to track them down. That would be good!
Literary reputation is a funny thing. Macaulay has points in common with Virginia Woolf and rather more with Evelyn Waugh and seems to me to be as good a writer as either of them- yet they're established modern classics and she isn't. I really don't understand why.
