At the Jerusalem book. Unknown Binding, 220 pages. Published July 16th 1992 by Bloomsbury Pub Ltd (first published May 1967). Paul Bailey wrote the introduction to the last book I read, Mrs Palfrey at the Claremont, with the claim that he is peculiarly qualified to do so. Mrs Palfrey makes friends with a young writer who spends his days in the banking hall at Harrods, assiduously observing older ladies for his book set in a home for the old, titled They Weren't Allowed To Die There.

Paul Bailey is sensitive to the exact nuance of conversation, the precise detail that can create an environment or a mood, and draw the reader into it. His book is an exquisitely defined miniature whose impression will not easily be forgotten. With an introduction by Colm Tóibín.
