Even better, come back tomorrow for the chance to win two magazines. See you then. It was very nice to meet Jane and Margaret, and to see Mary again — this blog really has given me all sorts of lovely opportunities. Having read The Sixpenny Debt etc. My two favourite stories, though, are both connected with the middle classes committing murder… what does that say about me?
Which one? Dulcie was the Scourge of the Evening Class, generic.

And I use the term loosely, to include day-time classes, weekend courses, summer schools — Dulcie was the scourge of the lot.

In these two volumes apparently four are planned are interviews with the great and good of the writing world, collected from decades of The Paris Review. The interviews are produced in their rough forms — i. All to the good — it will feel like sitting alongside them. What really does make these books is their design — something so cheerful, but also bohemian — a little hint of fin de siecle against Art Deco and, oh, more or less everything arty all rolled into something simple and happy.
This is a bit like those questions Smash Hits were famous for asking their interviewees, but — if you could interview any author, who would it be? And what would you ask? One question — think about it. Since then they have published four more that have been equally successful. All are superb, eye-catching productions with the cover illustrations provided by the generosity of Valerie Petts, the renowned Oxford water colourist. All five books are in constant high demand in bookshops and libraries.
Our breath is bated in anticipation of this next volume — jump in and enjoy.
This is an amusing collection of fifteen short stories set in Oxford. In this story the plot and the characters outweigh the interest of the setting, and move through the Oxford of the Commonwealth confidently and with no trace of the arch self-consciousness that mars some of the other stories. Small classes average size 5 students. Flexible times and notice for cancellation of classes.
