Pritchetts Englishness the dependable Englishness of shabby, bumptious businessmen, shy wives, puritanical suburbanites and vinegar-tongued grandmothers often came out in surprising ways.

Though comfortably set in the dirty brick factories south of the river or the dreary commuter villages on the outskirts of London, a story will show a Russian sense of passing time or a French pertness, glow poetically like a Bruno Schulz, or wound with the terrible detail of a Danilo Kis. The innate knowledge of the insider is registered with the outsiders shocked vividness.The fourteen stories of It May Never Happen show Pritchetts distinctive mastery. A fearful sailor falls into temptation ashore.

An evangelist of the Church of the Last Purification arrives in a provincial town to demonstrate the non-existence of evil. A party of cyclists mistakes a private house for a pub. Two business partners fall out over money and a typist called Miss Croft with a small waist and big red fingers. And Aunt Gertrude breaks a mirror and remembers her girlhood.
