Praise

“Sylvia Townsend Warner, an eccentric and accomplished novelist, brings this story to life with unforgettable vividness.” —NPR 

“At long last I pulled down from its place on the shelves
Sylvia Townsend Warner’s plump little novel impishly titled Mr. Fortune’s Maggot and was once again amazed by what a witty, poetic, clairvoyant writer this English woman was.”
—John Updike

“Mr. Fortune’s Maggot is satire at its best. There are pas-
sages here—particularly those delightfully malicious ones, of which there are many—that still cause the reader to laugh out loud. There is so much truth here in regard to Christianity, innocent love, and English reticence that it is easy to dismiss Mr. Fortune’s Maggot as a novel without a clear content. Truth can be very simple and very engaging.”
—Anthony Slide
