‘To Bed with Grand Music’ by Marghanita Laski – Book Review

This book is exactly why I love Persephone books. I knew absolutely nothing about either the author or the blurb before picking this up and so went into the read with zero preconceived ideas…

AND I HAD A BLAST!

This is set during WWII but is unlike any war novel I’ve ever read as it entirely focuses on the sexual goings on of a wife once her husband departs for war. And it’s a hoot. Oh my god, the lead character Deborah is fabulous. She is entirely deluded, 100% self-centred and is an utter joy to read about. I mean she’s pretty much a terrible human being but wow does she know how to have a good time and I am so here for it.

YOU DO YOU DEBORAH!

This is brilliantly written, exposes a side to the war that is not much talked about and just makes for a marvellously entertaining read.
Loved it.

Four stars.
