I was reading so many fabulous books when I read this. It didn't measure up. ( )

Superb novel about a young woman just out of college moving into and creating a satisfying life. There are many novels about the plain country mouse being dazzled by the worldly city mouse but this may be one of the best.

Clara has grown up in a provincial northern town, the daughter of an ineffectual father and grim unloving mother. Her years in college and move to London lead to new relationships, esp with a charming brother and sister who are part of the kind of wealthy, cultured, literary family that she's always dreamed of. Her embrace of and entry in to this world is a fascinating story and told with the kind of detail that I could just eat up with a spoon.

When the novel switches to Gabriel's story, I felt like it lost a bit of its mojo - he was so much less interesting and anything that increased the distance between the reader and Clara was unwelcome. Still, I found the ending to be truly satisfying - you really can't go home again and reconciliation is simply not always possible. ( )

'she pictured...some truly terrestrial paradise, where beautiful people in beautiful houses spoke of beautiful things', 5 Jan 2015

This review is from: Jerusalem the Golden (Penguin Modern Classics) (Paperback)
Written in the 1960s, this is the story of Clara Maugham, the academic daughter of an upper working-class family in northern England. Always aware that there is a better world out there than the ugly town of her birth, and her grim-faced mother, Clara puts all her energies into escape to university.
Once there, the thought of going home for holidays fills her with dread, especially after meeting the fascinating Denham family - writer parents with apparently wonderful offspring - notably her friend, Clelia, and the utterly charming Gabriel...
Does Clara's full-scale adoption of the Denhams' tastes and beliefs show a certain immaturity? Clara even acknowledges to herself 'she had sought the smartly intense, at the expense of the more solid and dowdy virtues.'
But as she grows up and has to gather her strength to make her life what she wants, she realises they were a means of 'self-advancement' - and through her association she has indeed advanced enough not to be held back by others' claims on her. ( )

Drabble writes superbly and this short novel (200 pages in the small penguin format) is a good example. We live inside Clara's skin and personality as she emerges from the schoolgirl living with an apparently small minded and repressed mother into the louche world of London writers and artists, becoming eventually herself and her own person. One word of warning: the book ends with Clara's emergence - you will be left wanting to know what happens next . . . . ( )
