In praise of Ivy Compton-Burnett...

...longterm SIAB readers know that I love Dame Ivy, but I'm spreading the joy over at Vulpes Libris today. It's also sort of about A Heritage and Its History (1959) which is the latest one of hers I've read - and which has the glorious opening line: “It is a pity you have not my charm, Simon.”


I've now moved to, and all my old posts are over there too - do come and say hello :)

I probably won't see your comment here, I'm afraid, but all my archive posts can also be found at
