READ & DOWNLOAD à A Lot to Ask The Life of Barbara Pym Hazel Holt Ë 9 READ & DOWNLOAD READ & DOWNLOAD A Lot to Ask The Life of Barbara Pym This satisfying and exuisitely crafted biography of the beloved British novelist is sure to delight the large. After Barbara Pym s death American author Anne Tyler wrote What do people turn to when they ve finished Barbara Pym The answer is easy they turn back to Barbara Pym Although I have not uite completed her oeuvre I very much appreciate this perspective Pym s novels have so much to offer and her strength of place and character as well as her delicious wit are worth revisiting over and over againI realised some months ago that there are many authors whose work I have greatly enjoyed but whom I know very little about as individuals Trying to remedy that I reuested a copy of Hazel Holt s biography A Lot to Ask A Life of Barbara Pym from my local library and settled down with it on a peaceful afternoonIn this biography says the blurb we come to know a person whose humour and sharp observation were uniuely combined with a compassionate acceptance of human nature ualities that made her such an outstanding novelist It is promised that Pym emerges from these pages as an entertaining companion with an insatiable curiosity and an unuenchable delight in the eccentricities of her fellows Holt was a good friend to Pym and also acted as her literary executor before passing away in 2015 In her introduction Holt writes It seemed right to try to put Barbara into her own setting to define the manners and s of the social scene around her one day her novels will be a rich source for social historians to describe her friends and colleagues and to show how her books were moulded by her life as well as the other way around The book includes many entries from Pym s private papers as well as a lot of her correspondence this is particularly true in the case of the friendship between herself and poet Philip Larkin Even in the briefest correspondence Pym writes beautifully and compassionately to her intendedRather than focus entirely on Pym Holt gives some of the rather colourful history of her parents and grandparents Pym s own childhood in a small market town in Shropshire was comfortable and conventional uite by contrast to the life of her illegitimate father and filled with a great deal of uiet affection When she moved to Oxford to study English Literature at University however Pym became somewhat alive She kept a diary which she regularly filled with sightings of men whom she liked and certainly had a great deal of adventures with them Whilst at University Pym occasionally attended Labour Party meetings but for the young men than for the politics Holt continually asserts how important Pym s imagination was to her she often preferred her conjured fantasies and imagined relationships with others to whatever was happening in reality Holt follows Pym through various love affairs here she observes Pym often made the mistake of expecting than the other person was prepared to give of building a great romantic castle on shifting sand In some ways Holt writes Pym was rather na ve and this was particularly true when it came to politics or the problems of the wider world When she moved to Poland to work as a governess in the tumultuous days of 1938 she largely ignored the threat of war Although she notes without comment that the Germans had entered Prague she gives eual space in her diary to the fact that she had been served fried potatoes with yoghurt Holt captures uite vividly Pym s travels around Europe which become extensive following the Second World War as well as the war work which she completed in Naples ItalyIn A Lot to Ask there is as one might expect a lot of commentary about Pym s books and her writing practices which I found rather enlightening Holt uotes at length from many of Pym s books in order to further illustrate points It is clear that even as a teenager Pym was already developing her signature prose style capturing scenes and individuals in such vivid detail in just a sentence or twoPym wrote thirteen novels four of which were published posthumously after her untimely death from cancer in early 1980 There was however a painful fourteen year period in which Pym could not find a publisher for her books and which impacted her greatly She is a novelist who has thankfully and deservedly risen to prominence once again in the twenty first century and I for one feel grateful that I still have several of her books yet to readFirst published in 1990 A Lot to Ask is a biography of the loveliest measure One can tell how fond Holt was of Pym yet the biography still feels as considered and far reaching as it would be had the pair never known one another at all Like her subject Holt writes with a great deal of warmth and understanding So absorbing and highly readable A Lot to Ask has so much depth to it and feels entirely harmonious Holt s biography is a sheer delight both charming and satisfying I would dearly like to read of her work as well as the remainder of Pym s correspondence in the near future 1000 paper cuts people turn to when they ve finished Barbara Pym The answer is
