Much Promise, Little Performance

Much Promise, Little Performance cover

Much Promise, Little Performance is short story written in the Marlow universe of Antonia Forest. We are of course on Marlow time, but in this case it coincides with the publication date (1967) of The Ready-Made Family and the events of this piece take place during the Easter holiday contemporaneously with that book.

Two teachers on a train to Paris discuss school politics, bad parenting, societal pressures on teenage girls and the idiosyncrasies of a particular set of pupils.

Warnings: The author chooses not to warn.

The original central cover photograph is of a view from a train window by محمد بوعلام عصامي. The fonts used in this book are from the Source Serif Pro font family by Frank Grießhammer.

The images and fonts were used under license detailed on their respective website pages at the date of this book publication.

As usual, Russ from shoes for industry designed the book cover, produced the books and compiled the on-line work.

The opinions, prejudices, faults and spelling herein are all my own work, and I apologise in advance for them.

This short story is rated PG. You might also like to consider other books set in the Antonia Forest fandom.
