The Girls of Slender Means (New Directions Classic) by Muriel Spark

The Girls of Slender Means is Dame Muriel Sparks tragic portrait of a London ladies hostel just emerging from the shadow of World War II. Like the May of Teck Club itself - three times window-shattered since 1940 but never directly hit - its lady inhabitants do their best to act as if the world were back to normal: practicing elocution, and jostling over suitors and a single Schiaparelli gown. The novels ending reveals that the girls giddy literary and amorous peregrinations are hiding some tragically painful war wounds.
