Part four of the thirteen part series, called Pilgrimage, about Miriam Henderson and her life. Miriam is now 21 and has taken a job in London as a Dentist's receptionist. She lives in a room and is increasingly becoming more independent at a time when women were expected to remain in the family home and then get married and have children. She finds freedom in learning how to ride a bicycle. She takes up writing, forms friendships of her own and relies more and more on herself. There is no plot to speak of nor is there any apparent form to the book, just Miriam's thoughts as they occur to her. This makes it confusing at times and at others downright obtuse. But the prose is marvellous and I don't think that you could get any better in stream of consciousness. Difficult but worth it.
