I just read my first Elizabeth Taylor, so I can't recommend which is best to read first--but I can say that the first one I read, "In a Summer Season," made me want to read all of them. Her sentences are pungent, strong, and her observations are so sharp they remind me of Barbara Pym. The domestic microsphere in which "In a Summer Season" is set also made me think of Pym. And the sheer pleasure of keeping company with her intelligent, wry and compassionate mind.
