"Mrs. Palfrey At The Claremont" 1971 TAYLOR, Elizabeth

Jacket design by Adrian Daintrey
8" x 5 1/2"
First edition, first impression - rare; shortlisted for the 1972 Booker Prize and one of The Guardian's '100 Best Novels of the Twentieth-Century': "Elizabeth Taylor's exquisitely drawn character study of eccentricity in old age is a sharp and witty portrait of genteel postwar English life facing the changes taking shape in the 60s. Much of the reader's joy lies in the exquisite subtlety in Taylor's depiction of all the relationships, the sharp brevity of her wit, and the apparently effortless way the plot unfolds."
