Here, Frame covers the 1920's through the 80's. Styles and periods he is too young to have witnessed-including 1920's Borneo, a tennis club in 1930's Cornwall and wartime London-he captures with uncanny skill. His heroine is also a convincing period piece, with her taste for hats that both proclaim and conceal and with her need for a certain type of man to take her emotional life in charge. For Anglophiles, the book is a feast of the poetry of well-heeled English life-Harrod's, the Savoy, the Berkeley, holidays in France-and the very English poetry of good manners papering over emptiness, hatred and despair.

I have already read this book and found it to be very interesting, confusing and engrossing. I don't want to give anything away. It's not "suspenseful", but you are never quite where you think you are, and it does create suspense iin a kind of subtle non obvious way. I would like to read it again, and plan to give it as a present.

This is a book not unconcerned with material coverings for the head. Hats, in other words. Penelope wears many over the course of her life. One, you see, would not suffice.

The story of Penelope is told in such a way that the reader can't help but be a participant in its construction. So many elisions, censored inner lives and motivations not laid bare; clues, but no definite answers.

Those interested in the exploration of writing and its implications will find an abundance of food for thought. Given that this novel lacks a conventional narrative, this might not be the book of choice for people who read for Plot.

I came across Penelope's Hat in the public library. For the past one and the half year, I'm the only one borrowing this book. This book is strangely bizzare and time seemed to be a rather insubstantial quality to the plot of the novel. As I dwell deeper into the novel, I discover myself revelling into different realms of reality. I can't put a finger to describe how exactly intrigued and affected I am by the book. I still hadn't fully understood the book and am still re-reading it to get a fuller picture of it. I get the feeling that there are a few shifts as to who the protagonist is. Sometimes it seemed like Ronald Frame himself is telling the story but sometimes Penelope herself. I can't say enough about how much I'm drawn to Penelope's hat. I always believe that true power lies in perception. Perception that manifests in words. The descriptive language is beautifully written. Ronald Frame has used his brilliant craft to tell his tale. He shows and tells-- with this, he has poignantly enthralled me. Frame is definitely a master at story-telling and as a budding writer myself, I would really love to possess this inner strength that he exudes in his works. Lastly, I must say that this book is a rare gem and is all the more so since it's already out of print. I am still searchimg for a copy to keep myself.As the plot of the novel is not confined to the unreal chains of time, this makes the book all the more timeless. Hence, Penelope's Hat is definitely a work that shines like a diamond amongst pebbles!
