This month (and next) join us as we read Dorothy Whipple’s High Wages:

I have not read any of Dorothy Whipple’s works yet but am looking forward to reading this one. English novelist J.B. Priestly called her the, “Jane Austen of the 20th Century.”   Her novels were well received between the wars. Two of which were made into films: They Were Sisters and They Knew Mr. Knight.   In the 1950’s her popularity declined  but recently Persephone Books  have republished nine of her novels. Perhaps a revival is afoot  (Wiki).
