Bob probably won't agree, but my favorite is "Excellent Women." I wonder what Miss Pym would have made of this honor.

Bob Smith

Excellent Women is brilliant but for the Thebes readers please start with A Glass Of Blessings. It has three of the most brilliant and hilarious gay characters ever to grace a novel. But my first Pym was Excellent Women and it made me read every one of her books.

Paul Brownsey

Funnily enough, A Glass of Blessings is the one I recommended to someone as their first Pym: I thought it encapsulated all the typical Pym concerns and attitudes perfectly.
