Title Profile & Character Information

Major Pettigrew's Last Stand

Annotation
Major Pettigrew, now retired, becomes friends and then some with the shopkeeper Mrs. Ali, of Pakistani descent but born in Cambridge. (The major was born in Lahore.) Charm combines with the new social realities; possibly the little debut that could-there will be lots of outreach.
