Reading Nevil Shute

For a day off, this afternoon I read through Nevil Shute’s 1939 novel, What Happened to the  Corbetts.

Shute predicted the bombing of Southampton in a subdued story of the war’s effects on a middle-class family.

Have no idea how this copy came into our hands.

Coincidental that on my last trip to the US in May I caught the first TV version of On the Beach.
