I Capture The Castle by Dodie Smith


  •  A wonderfully quirky coming of age story, equisitely bound in this little format,  I Capture the Castle is an affectionately drawn portrait of one of the funniest families in literature.
  • The eccentric Mortmain family have been rattling around a vast, decrepit castle for years, gradually slippiing into financial ruin. Mortmain is crippled by writer's block, while his beautiful wife Topaz struggles to be a dutiful stepmother to Rose, Cassandra and Thomas. Rose needs a husband, Thomas an education but Cassandra lives for her writing. Through her gloriously witty and shrewd diaries, she chronicles the trials of family life, the impact of the arrival of a glamorous American family, and the agonies of falling in love for the first time.
