My Husband Simon by Mollie Panter-Downes



‘I loved this book so much! It covers themes of what is to be a working woman, a writer, and the sacrifices made to protect a working life, that seem so relevant and real, it’s hard to believe it was written so long ago – engenders feelings of cross-generational frustration and solidarity!’


‘Mollie Panter-Downes beautifully and expertly transports you to both the glamour and the mundane everyday life of 1930s, middle-class London. Truly wonderful!’
