Poppy, a newly recruited cub reporter at the Downingham Post, is determined to prove to the editor that he’s wrong in his belief that ‘Women are a nuisance in the office’.

He certainly doesn’t think she’s a nuisance when it’s time for the tea round. Living as a single professional woman in the post-war years certainly has its challenges – from finding a room when the tyrannical landlady doesn’t consider Poppy to be quite respectable, to changing her editor’s deeply entrenched ways. In this semi-autobiographical novel, Monica Dickens shows that newspaper life is often grindingly mundane; yet also varied, enjoyable and often comical.
