By Mollie Panter-Downes


Published in 1931 in the immediate aftermath of D H Lawrences Lady Chatterleys Lover controversy, Mollie Panter-Downes's book explores the different echelons of the increasingly self-conscious middle class and the ways in which the tensions and nuances of vocabulary, dress, occupation, politics, taste and, ultimately, the literary world contribute to the incompatibility of a marriage.
