Have I Read This?

Why I Capture the Castle has gained a secret cult of book lovers at Vox was intriguing because I think I might have read the book. Or seen the movie. Or both.

Unless I'm thinking of Cold Comfort Farm. ("I saw something nasty in the woodshed.") Or maybe We Have Always Lived in the Castle?

Clearly I am not a member of a I Capture the Castle cult.

Me, neither. I'm not sure why I read the Dodie Smith title, but I wanted to slap everyone. Move. Get a job. Do something to improve your own situation! Instead, they seemed to revel in their poverty.

Wow. You remember it. I have a recollection of a mother standing in the road naked in a movie, but I can't remember whether it was I Capture the Castle movie or Cold Comfort Farm movie. I really am pretty certain I read them both. But they made no impression.
