Miss Pym DisposesBook - 1998 | 1st Scribner Paperback Fiction ed.
Miss Lucy Pym, a popular English psychologist, is guest lecturer at a physical training college. The year's term is nearly over, and Miss Pym -- inquisitive and observant -- detects a furtiveness in the behavior of one student during a final exam. She prevents the girl from cheating by destroying her crib notes. But Miss Pym's cover-up of one crime precipitates another -- a fatal "accident" that only her psychological theories can prove was really murder.

She wondered if all actors were like that. Perambulating spheres of atmosphere with a little actor safely cocooned at the heart of each. How nice it must be, so cushioned and safe from harsh reality. They weren’t really born at all; they were still floating in some pre-natal fluid. (Miss Pym’s musings are, in my view, the best description of this race of self-absorbed zombies: actors!)
I like everything about the English except their clothes, their winter, and their teeth. (Teresa Desterro, the “Brazilian” student known among her peers as Nut Tart—in an allusion to brazil nuts.)
