Mariana by Monica Dickens
Book DescriptionThis is a funny, intensely readable 'hotwater bottle' which is a great Persephone favourite.This 1940 novel is the touching and often extremely funny story of a young English girl's growth towards maturity in the 1930s. We see her at school, on holiday in Somerset, her attempt at drama school, her year in Paris learning dressmaking and getting engaged to the wrong man, and finally the arrival of Mr Right.

Author Biography - Monica Dickens
MONICA DICKENS (1915-92) was a debutante before working as a cook. One Pair of Hands (1937), her first book, described life in the kitchens of Kensington. It was the first of a group of semi-autobiographies of which Mariana (1940), technically a novel, was one. 'My aim is to entertain rather than instruct,' she wrote. 'I want readers to recognise life in my books.'
