An Unsuitable Attachment - Barbara Pym

"An elderly female novelist had come in at a quarter to six and Penelope had found herself trying to explain why her latest novel had not been reviewed in the Sunday Telegraph, why it had not been advertised more widely, why copies had not been displayed on the bookstall of a friend's local station, why it had not yet been reprinted."

 

I wonder if Pym is referring to herself here, given the difficulties she had with this novel's publication?
