Sobre o Autor
Clare Chamber's first job after reading English Literature at Hertford College, Oxford, was working for Diana Athill at Andre Deutsch. Clare's first novel UNCERTAIN TERMS was published by Diana at André Deutsch in 1992 and she is the author of five other novels.
SMALL PLEASURES, her first work of fiction in ten years, became a word-of-mouth hit on publication and was selected for BBC 2's 'Between the Covers' book club.

A perceptively observed story which looks at the quiet, orderly life of a woman who is single not from choice, but from a lack of opportunity in finding the right man to marry, and who has to make do with the small pleasures of life amongst all of the mundanities. The author portrays well the suffocating effect that Jean's mother has on her daughter and how difficult it is for Jean to break free from her mother’s dependence on her and the resultant guilt she experiences when she does manage to get some time to herself. Ms Chambers also describes well the time period she has set her story in (I wasn’t alive in 1957, but the author's writing certainly appears very evocative of that time) and although, for the most part, this is essentially a gentle and slow-moving story, there are aspects to it that keep the reader guessing until the end and I was engaged from the first page to the last. A warm, involving and enjoyable read and one I would recommend.
I also found the end jarring. And perhaps just plain cruel to the characters and the reader - I’m not sure what purpose it really gave other than for us to realise that poor Jeans life would continue to be “bleak” in her own words.
No idea how the two true stories link together either. That could have been done much more sophisticatedly. A shame, this book had promise and I enjoyed parts. On reflection 3 stars is too generous so I’ve dropped to two!
