S3 Ep 3: Lolly Willowes by Sylvia Townsend Warner

This fortnight we are talking about the extremely neglected book Lolly Willowes by Sylvia Townsend Warner. It’s a gem! Lolly Willowes was pubished in 1926 and is a wonderful portrayal of a woman forging her own path. This book is a treasure trove of feminist ideas, and it features gloriously sensory, sensual, tactile language.

As always, spoilers abound, and you don’t want this wonderful book spoiled. So go read it and come back! We’ll wait.
