The best way to think of Powell is as a lesser known Dorothy Parker. Witty and funny, writing in the post-war era. Her books are great social commentaries, but I am annoyed as the recent editions have not been edited well. Lots of annoying typos. I was hoping to add her books to my collection, but I think I'll wait until better editions come out.
