Here I found, among the Penguin Modern Classics, Stevie Smith's Novel on Yellow Paper. Then, too, there is a knowing handling of rhythmic repetitions, a debt perhaps to Gertrude Stein, and in several places a delight in American slang which is used as a challenge to mandarin prose.

Read the first few pages. If you love the the voice you'll love the whole book. If you can't stand it don't continue.

Wonderful! Way beyond my expectations! It took me a while because I kept going back and rereading parts I'd especially enjoyed.

This is a lot of silly nonsense.

Are you a foot-on-the-ground person? Well Stevie warns you not to read it: 'This is a foot-off-the-ground novel that came by the left hand... And if you are a foot-on-the-ground person, this book will be for you a desert of weariness and exasperation. So put it down. Leave it alone. It was a mistake you made to get this book.' For foot-on-the ground readers it requires too much effort to situate the book in 1930s England, but if that is a drawback then why read anything older than the 21st century? To foot-off-the-ground people this novel is a garden of delights, a crazy, funny and highly intelligent reflection on life, the universe and everything. Its stream of consciousness is more convincing than Joyce's, and its originality bears comparison with that of Tristram Shandy. Get it and don't put it down!

Pompey Casmilus is a secretary living in London in the 1930's. In this book, she describes her thoughts about love, work, friendship and the Germans, amongst other things. If you're looking for a plot this isn't the book for you, but if you want emotional honesty and a startlingly original (and up to date) viewpoint, then go ahead and read it. Don't let the book's surreal style put you off - there's plenty of thought-provoking material in there.

as a devoted Smith fan, it pains me to say that everything that makes Stevie Smith a compelling and original poet seems to work against her as a novelist. NOYP is too cute, too self-consciously experimental, and terribly dated. For those seeking insight into Smith's unique and fervid imaginative life, it's interesting, but not much fun to read more than once.
