teacher and locally known poet fiftyish Sarah Vincent grew up in a well to do Presbyterian family The family s stately home on the shores of Belfast Lough not far from the Zoological Gardens was divided into apartments after the death of Sarah s father Sarah now lives in one flat and her girlhood friends Helen and Addie live in the others For years Sarah has regularly attended tea parties with her former school chums among them Mary now a grandmother the well to do Florence and 40 year old Joyce the younger sister of Rose who was the first of Sarah s cohort to die tragically in her 20s during childbirth Rose s is not the only sad story Kitty another unfortunate is mentally ill and keeps to her bed Kindhearted and used to obliging others Sarah the only unmarried woman of the bunch makes regular visits to the unstable and aggressive woman whom everyone else avoids Sarah is believed to have a special calming influence on Kitty It s convenient for the others to think so anywaySarah has a lot of of things weighing on her She is not nearly as free of responsibilities as the others think First there is the matter of the unfortunate Helen who has lived a very different life from Sarah Once a wife and mother Helen is professionally successful she runs a thriving flower shop but privately she is a mess Mired in memories of personal tragedies Helen is histrionic and seeks solace in the arms of a series of gentleman callers one of them Kitty s husband Helen s beauty is fading fast and it is the job of plain and steady Sarah to prop her up On the one hand Helen is scornful of her friend s lack of sexual knowledge Sarah s senior girls seem better informed than their teacher on the other hand Helen depends on Sarah s uniue combination of unconditional positive regard and school teacher bossiness It s a game of sorts Sarah realizes and she follows the unspoken rules until one day she doesn tNone of Sarah s friends is aware of the ways in which she is haunted Chided constantly in childhood about her homely large and graceless body she attempted early on to dissociate herself from her physical being paying as little mind to her appearance as possible and focussing instead on developing her intellect As a young person Sarah also happened upon two distressing scenes of a sexual nature one of them involving a family member No one ever bothered to discuss either of these experiences with her The events were subseuently buried until Sarah had a breakdown in adolescence Her mother an invalid for many years died soon after Sarah may now be middle aged but part of her remains a child imprisoned in the past At times she still hears sees and addresses her dead parents Freud would have had a heyday with this womanMacNeill s novel offers a glimpse into a certain middle class segment of mid twentieth century Belfast society when women s roles and sexual s were beginning to change The book is also a sensitive and restrained psychological study of sexual repression The novel was originally published in 1964 and appears to be set in the early 1960s There are a few references to the new freedoms for women specifically the birth control pill which was first introduced as a contraceptive in 1960 I found McNeill s mention of The Troubles in the text to be uite confusing as I ve always understood the term to apply to the Northern Ireland of the late 1960s and early 1970s I didn t know until I did some online research that the Belfast Riots of 1920 1922 are called The First Troubles In the novel to avoid being shot at McNeill s characters had when young been forced to lie down in the trams that took them to and from school during this period The Maiden Dinosaur is a brisk and compelling character driven novel which manages to accomplish a lot in relatively few pages There s much to ponder here including the ways in which literature can hoodwink young impressionable girls into dangerous romanticization of sexuality and relations between the sexesThis is a book that begs to be read re read and discussed with friends

    What a deliciously simpering attack on all things romantic or erotic It invites you in straight into Sarah Vincent's world of mid life ladies at a Tea Party in the upper window of a Belfast cafe There is an explosion of small intimacies of details in the lives of the people who now share the large old house with Sarah child of the original owners Thornehill has been divided into several flats Helen in Mama's

    I first came across McNeill via a recommendation from Glenn Patterson on the Literary Belfast site and really enjoyed 'Tea at 4 o'clock' when I read it earlier in the year This book was very difficult to find and I was looking forward to reading it but while it has its merits I didn't enjoy it nearly as muchThe novel tells the story of Sarah Vincent a 50 something spinster school mistress who lives in the home in which she grew up a large h

    just finished this and I though of the Sarah the protagonist as a continuation of Leo from Hartley's The Go Between uite a surprise and a moving one at that McNeill's ensemble of aging souls gives pause for thought
