it was amazing
bookshelves: britain, persephone
Read from April 22 to June 07, 2010

I allowed myself one or two a week so as to hang around in Whipple world longer. Her witty moral indignation and her sense of the weight of daily things light up these stories. It's wonderful to watch her wave her fairy godmother's wand over a frustrated, disappointed life, whether she is coming to the rescue or burning a tragedy into the reader's memory.
