Minnie's Room: The Peacetime Stories of Mollie Panter-Downes - Mollie Panter-Downes WHY: Companion to "Good Evening, Mrs. Craven," which I really enjoyed. Stories about post-WWII England. England suffered the privations of war long after the war, with rationing continuing into the fifties and a whole way of life destroyed. Very different from America's post-WWII years.
