Conversation Piece (1932) – A Molly Keane Novel
In Molly Keane’s wonderful novel Conversation Piece, Oliver visits Pullinstown, and is introduced to wild days of hunting and shooting, and to characters like his cousins, with their passion for horses and trickery. Molly’s headstrong character of Sir Richard, though elderly, is every bit the match for his headstrong offspring.
The author has also written under the pseudonym, M.J. Farrell.
