20/100: Dodie Smith - I Capture The Castle
(First published 1948, this edition 2004 by Vintage)
(Book 20/100 for 2012)
This was an utterly gorgeous book - a classic which I'd somehow managed to not read until now. I like it because it's funny, silly and sweet, and the hero of the book has a beard, even though he's made to shave it off. I like beards.
