There was an agenda. We were to be useful to society. We would graduate, then marry, then be mothers, also nurses and teachers, brainy, dowdy, overstretched: selfless breeders with aching calves, speaking well of support stockings by the age of thirty-five, finding our comfort in strong tea with one sugar.

The Little Woman Inside
I read this book a few years ago and was impressed by how well Mantel captured the time period. It is nice to see a good literary writer getting so much recognition and making some money by winning the Booker with the fabulous Wolf Hall. I read this one a couple of years ago and was very impressed by it. I admit, I read it as a portrait of the artist as a young woman. I completely agree with you about the semi-autobiographical slant of the book.
Thanks for dropping by, Matthew, and for reminding me about this book.

Fiction — Kindle edition; Fourth Estate; pages; A novel based on personal experience Even though An Experiment in Love was her seventh novel, it feels semi-autobiographical. Tied to her past by an ever-present childhood friend The narrative is one that flips backwards and forwards in time as Carmel recalls incidences from her childhood — all of which relate to Karina, who grew up on the same street and is now living in Tonbridge Hall.
A fast-paced narrative While not much happens in the book, it is a fabulously gripping read.
