    MOBI uartet in Autumn eBook ´ uartet in ePUB ë Õ pamyatnik.pro uartet ebok, autumn kindle, uartet in kindle, uartet in Autumn ePUBThis little novel probably appealed to me so strongly because these four people are in the zone that I currently inhabit—they are reaching retirement age and wondering if they are ready for this next phase of lifeI’m currently flailing around trying to determine if I have the financial resources necessary to pull the plug because like Letty and Marcia I never married and I’m now responsible for my own future But how times have changed—I’m no longer at the mercy of the government pension to determine how my future unfolds and I’ve been able to plan better things for myselfStill I understand the uncertainties of retirement How will my days be structured? What activities will fill my time? Will I still be able to afford many of the activiti

    MOBI uartet in Autumn eBook ´ uartet in ePUB ë Õ pamyatnik.pro uartet ebok, autumn kindle, uartet in kindle, uartet in Autumn ePUBThere's something magnetic about Barbara Pym's prose and her prickly very private isolated protagonists On the book's cover each of the characters faces away from the centre; indeed a very superficial reader might leave this book with the impression that the characters don't much like each other But that would be to mistake their very British reserve for lack of compassion On the contrary there is so much compassion in the awkward way that the four retired protagonists connect Their thoughts run unbidden to one another the tiny echoes of past interactions in the absence of pressing current concerns dictate their inner and outer livesPym's ability to write the uotidian rhythm of life without losing the reader is both artistic triumph and a reaction to the hegemony of the young Away from the current of social change of 1970s England though not unaware of i
