'I am a Dorothy Whipple evangelist, buttonholing everyone I can to try and get them to read her remarkable novels. It was hard to choose from her work, but in the end, I decided on Someone at a Distance which is about the effects of a rather unusual  French femme fatale on a middle class English family. Every single person is brought to wondrous life and no one since Austen has cast such a sharp eye on the details of human vanity and vulnerability.'
