I Capture the Castle, Dodie Smith

This book feels a lot like the good old “Jane Austen updated for the current day,” except that the current day in this case is the 1930s, when it was first published. Charming journal of a young girl; at turns romantic, incisive and very, very funny. Recommended.

There’s a movie, which I now want to see– Roger Ebert thought highly of it– but, God help me, it has Marc Blucas in. Sigh.
