I have just purchased The Priory by Dorothy Whipple from Persephone and was delighted to see on their website that Greenbanks will finally be in print again!

Thanks for the link to the Alan Bennett piece, it was both very amusing and informative as I had had no idea that Cecil Woodham Smith was female despite having read The Great Hunger! All I can say in my defence is that it was an old copy and had no dust jacket with author information!

Thank you for the Bennett link, sadly to say we are all fighting for our closing public libraries here in London and the rest of England. How are things going in Scotland on that front, is your devolved government managing to keep their funding levels up? I read some Henty when I was about 12, has anyone else?
