9780099287780: The Little Girls

In 1914 they had been eleven years old - Dicey, Mumbo and Sheikie. Nearly fifty years have gone by since they met at St Agatha's, a day school on the South Coast. One of them, Dicey, a beauty to whom time has so far done little, deliberately convenes the other two - Clare, a successful career woman, and Sheila, a glossy matron, cool and correct Can friendship be taken up where it left off? For there is peril in summoning up the violence and mystification's of childhood. Forces which has been latent in all three are brought uncomfortably near to the surface by this reunion. With its wit and its characteristically brilliant texture, the novel is ingeniously constructed. There is little explanation in THE LITTLE GIRLS, but they are many clues. Even inanimate objects can be important, and random sayings or seemingly trivial events may acquire, retrospectively, a strange significance.

Dalla quarta di copertina:

In 1914 they had been eleven years old; three little girls at St Agatha's, a day school on the South Coast. Fifty years later, Dinah, beautiful as ever, advertises in the national newspapers to find the other two - Clare, now established with a successful business, and Sheila, a married woman, glossy, chic and correct.

In this brilliantly orchestrated novel, as subtle and compelling as a mystery story, Elizabeth Bowen asks whether friendship can be taken up where it has been left off. What are the revelations - and the dangers - in summoning up childhood?

'There is that recurring shiver of delight...for this story is poetic in its awareness, its stimulus, its beauty of writing; and as full of clues, hints and half-revealed secrets as any thriller' Scotsman

'Elizabeth Bowen's mastery of the shape and form and talk of the world around her combines with her miraculous psychological insight to give us moments of sudden vision' Angus Wilson
