Miss Pettigrew is a down-on-her-luck, middle-aged governess sent by her employment agency to work for a nightclub singer rather than a household of unruly children. Over a period of 24 hours, her life is changed -- forever.

This charming, funny, lighthearted 1938 novel was a bestseller on its first appearance and has been reprinted many times since Persephone Books first reissued it, complete with its original illustrations, for a new generation of readers.

Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day was read on BBC Radio 4 by Maureen Lipman. The film, starring Frances McDormand, Amy Adams and Ciaran Hinds, will be released in 2008.
