One thought on “Enchanted April is the Virago Modern Classics book of the month

  1. This is such a good choice for a Spring read. Several people on twitter have commented on how much they love this novel which is based on a ‘glorious’ holiday von Arnim took at Portifino. This is officially her ‘Happy’ book though ‘Elizabeth and herGerman Garden’ and ‘The Solitary Summer’ share similar qualities.

    The award-winning film adaptation of ‘The Enchanted April’ lifts the spirits too! Look out for the pitch- perfect performances of the entire cast – Alfred Mollina and Josie Lawrence especially fine.

    Happy Spring reading.
