Miss Pettigrew is a down-on-her-luck, middle-aged governess sent by her employment agency to work for a nightclub singer rather than a household of unruly children. Over a period of 24 hours her life is changed - forever.
This charming, funny, light-heared 1938 novel was a bestseller on first appearance and has been reprinted many times since Persephone Books first re-issued it, complete with its original illustrations, for a new generation of readers.
This edition is a Persephone Classic, meaning it has a full colour cover rather than the traditional dove grey dust jacket, and it is preloved, and in very good condition.
Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day is Persephone book number 21.
