READ Miss Pym Disposes READ Ë MAKANAT.CO Í Josephine Tey Josephine Tey Í 1 FREE READ To Lucy Pym author of a best seller on Psychology the atmosphere at the college where she is lecturing is heavy w. Having seen Josephine Tey recommended as one of the generation of golden age crime writers that often goes underread and is not given the credit she deserves I was keen to read some of her work after several enjoyable experiences with Agatha Christie Miss Pym Disposes is my starting point and is not strictly a crime novel in the traditional sense with the fateful incident that comes to define it part accident and not occurring until eighty percent of the way through the novel although the build up offers plenty of hints as to what to expect Written in 1946 I did notice rather dated references in contrast to some of Agatha Christie s 1930 novels but I was surprised how relevant some of the issues raised still remainThe story begins when a legacy leaves French teacher Miss Lucy Pym in a comfortable position to become a lady of leisure and sees her set her mind to writing a treatise of psychology which becomes an unexpected bestseller Prized as a guest speaker when she is invited to lecture by a sixth former who once saved her blushes as a timid fourth form student and is now the principal of a college of physical training she is happy to repay the kindness Not that Miss Pym feels she has much to offer the students of Leys Physical Training College a community that rouses at 530 am and moves seamlessly through a series of exhaustive physical pursuits and works the Seniors into a heightened state of anxiety in the week of Final Examinations and the Demonstration Housed in the student block and eagerly welcomed as a refreshingly interesting modern and entertaining guest speaker the Seniors are buoyed by Miss Pym s presence and implore her to stay until the day of the Demonstration Accepted amongst their number and is no shortage of demand Miss Pym finds it rather pleasant to be a novelty and wanted item in contrast to her relatively lonely London existence As she moves between the staff room and student numbers Lucy observes all of the Seniors at close uarters and becomes almost as invested in their hopes for the examinations and future employment postings as any of the staffHead Senior Pamela Beau Nash is a wealthy girl with grace and good fortune best friend Mary Innes a self contained intelligent and somewhat aloof individual and fanciful Teresa Desterro The Nut Tart a fiery Brazilian dance student Tey devotes much of the early proportion of the novel to fleshing out the entire group in detail offering plenty of pithy amusement and drawing self deprecating comparisons from Miss Pym However as Miss Pym unobtrusively goes about her day she is well positioned to observe the claustrophobic environment which causes her to wonder if it is uite as sound for the mind as it is for the body Principal Henrietta Hodge tells Lucy that when a human being works as hard as these girls do it has neither the spare interest to devise a crime nor the energy to undertake it However Miss Pym a keen interpreter of facial expressions recognises the tired and emotional state where the potential for a careless comment to become a grievance nursed looms large She herself comes to subscribes to the view of Miss Lux Sweating oneself into a coma may stultify the reason but it doesn t destroy the emotions With principal Miss Hodge is charge of directing job postings repercussions are set in motion when at unpopular girl and undoubtedly not the most suitable candidate is selected for a prestigious vacancy at Arlinghurst the female euivalent of Eton much to the chagrin of students and staff alike Lucy Pym is a compassionate and sensitive character able to sympathise with the girls and offer them an adult sounding board outside of the teaching staff As she finds herself caught up in examination week and this revelation that shoo in candidate Mary Innes has been passed over Lucy has seen enough to know where her sympathies lie The ensuing moral uestions leave law abiding Miss Pym in a position to offer up her own knowledge and potentially incriminate a young girl who meant no permanent harm or keep her counsel and let God dispose The mental gymnastics are fraught with difficulty and despite the world of academia having changed basic human emotions such as rivalry and jealousy ensure that this novel is still pertinent I did detect several hints towards what could be interpreted as lesbianism within the novel but these are never explored and I did have lingering uestions as to whether this was a factor in Miss Hodge s decisionReadily absorbing the reader is able to see from the off where the story is heading but this does nothing to spoil a gloriously entertaining read and within the space of 250 pages Josephine Tey manages to bring an English country summer to life provide a distinct cast of students and teachers and infuse a growing sense of angst into events The moral uestions and one final twist make for a breathtakingly good finish Not obviously as comfortable or seductive reading as the Agatha
