Dorothy Whipple on the BBC
I have just discovered that Radio 4 is running a series of readings from Dorothy Whipple's The Closed Door http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0084038. Persephone Books have re-published Whipple's books http://www.persephonebooks.co.uk/pages/authors/?id=48 and their list includes The Closed Door http://www.persephonebooks.co.uk/pages/titles/index.asp?id=105 among other titles including the increasingly popular Someone at a Distance. The episode I listened to was 'Family crisis', a story in which an unmarried daughter in her late 20s can no longer be taken for granted.
