This is a preloved book in very good condition.
'The stories in The Casino are witty and perceptive, and some of her metaphors and similes are extraordinary, for example: ''the water in each hollow, fringed with brown weed, was clear as gin''' wrote a Persephone reader. Five of them were wonderfully read on BBC Radio 4 by Emma Fielding (whose intelligent, quirky, sensitive voice – can anyone forget her Thomasina in the original production of Tom Stoppard's Arcadia? – was perfectly suited to Margaret Bonham's humour and originality). 'A collection of witty and acerbic short stories,' wrote Anna Carey in Image magazine. 'Whether Margaret Bonham's subjects are an unconventional new mother or a fledgling writer disappointed with the stolid ordinariness of her own home-life, her writing is cool, wry and touching.'
The Casino is Persephone Book number 48.
