Despite many people telling me that Josephine Tey is their favourite Golden Age author I have struggled with the books I tried previously As such I was a little dubious about this but I am glad that I gave it a try Published in 1946 this is a stand alone mystery set in Leys Physical Training College Indeed Tey herself attended a similar college and taught physical education in various schools so this is a world she knew well The Miss Pym of the title is Lucy Pym who to her own surprise wrote a successful psychology book and finds herself a sudden success When an old school friend now head of Leys asks her to come and speak she remembers how Henrietta Hodge once stepped in when she was being teased and agrees to come Although this is a crime novel it is much a character study Although at first Miss Pym is eager to leave she gradually finds herself drawn in to the life of the College and to get to know the students and staff Miss Hodge has the task of matching students to possible positions and with the students about to leave there is always much excitement when she reads out a name However when a brilliant student is passed over for a plum position it creates a bad feeling and leaves Miss Pym with a feeling of dangerI don t think that Tey will ever be my favourite author but I am pleased that I read this mature intelligent and well written novel and glad that I gave her work another chance

By this point in my reread of Josephine Tey it s than clear that she did not write ordinary books The cover blurb clearly gives out that Disposes is a murder mystery but the story is in no rush to do anyone in And that is brilliant and cruel We are introduced to Miss Pym and become friends It didn t take long at all to come to care about her still surprised and honestly delighted at her completely unanticipated fame and relative fortune at her still new ability to go wherever and do whatever she pleased There are times and circumstances in which it is almost as nice almost to see good things happen to good people as to have them to oneself it s lovely to watch Miss Pym as written by Josephine Tey exploring the sort of freedom I d wish for my own life and which come to think of it may have been a glimpse into Miss Tey s own feelings there is apparently much of Josephine Tey pseudonym of Elizabeth Mackintosh in Miss Pym and the girls and ladies of the school Elizabeth Mackintosh was according to the Times obituary via born and brought up at Inverness and was trained as a physical training instructress at the Anstey Physical Training College Birmingham Along with Miss Pym we meet the inmates of the Leys school for young women and seeing through her eyes there are perhaps two students who are less than lovely and one instructor everyone else is charming and indispensable Which is when the memory that this is a murder mystery begins to niggle Which of these will be the victim Worse which will be the killer For once there is no hint in the blurb at least in my edition the hideous cover of my copy makes it look like a student but covers are notoriously unreliable It s a different sort of suspense than is often found in the genre rather than being kept waiting to find out whodunnit or whether this one will escape the murderer or that one escape the law here it is a wait to see which of these people I ve uickly come to like will a die and b be responsible Neither is a appealing prospect than the other it didn t take long before I really didn t want any of them dead nor did I want any of them to be capable of killing anyone It is sadly rare to read a book in which the characters are so well made that their plotline becomes genuinely distressing Not a negligible accomplishment for the first hundred pages Tey is amazing I maunder on a bit on my blog
