And yet, among the other girls in the cypher department she is, as the original blurb, said as quiet as an Amanita in a basket of mushrooms ...Again to quote from the original blurb, Barbara Skelton reveals herself as a buoyant satirist, a mistress of the picaresque, a fresh and original humourist who casts a vivid and haunting life on the problem of men and women.
