“The People on Privilege Hill” by Jane Gardam

Immediately on finishing Gardam’s Old Filth, I learned that her story collection The People on Privilege Hill contained a story with Old Filth himself, Edward Feathers. I was thrilled to “meet” him again, and by turns charmed, saddened and teased by the other stories in this collection. Gardam is an impressive writer, conveying much with spare prose. I hope it’s not long before I have the chance to read The Man in the Wooden Hat, a sort of prequel to Old Filth.
